Louis-Simon Boizot (1743–1809) "Rising Day" allegorical bronze figure. Inscribed "Boizot" on base. 19"H x 10"W. dark brown patina. Rising Day and its companion work, Descending Night, were originally designed as fountain figures for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. Following the exhibition, Boizot reproduced both works in two sizes, one measuring approximately 25 inches tall and the other approximately 57 inches. Examples of Rising Day are in the collections of The Cleveland Museum of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.Boizot works are mostly in a sort of lyrical classical style. His figures typically are found wearing Greco-Roman clothing, but there is a fluidity found in his work that is a harbinger of the art deco style that was to follow him. Our bronze winged figure is a personification of the waning hours of daylight.


What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.
