The sculpture is of a male moose, standing still, perceiving his surroundings for predators, food and perhaps a mate. The moose (North America) or Eurasian elk (Europe), is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males. They are generally solitary and lessen their solitude briefly in the hopes of mating which occurs in their season of September and October. The bull stands majestically breaking the stillness and sounds of the deep forest with his heavy grunting sounds that can carry for 500 meters away. Moose are animals commonly found throughout North America that have been symbolic in Native culture since their tales began. Moose often stand for being headstrong, unstoppable, longevity, value, and integrity. Many boys had to seek totems of the Moose to show they had passed from childhood to manhood. The abstract, unrefined texture of it's surface give a certain tactility to the sculpture. The bull moose was cast using the age-old method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish. He walks mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Milo's signature.


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.
