Handmade Myron Bronze Sculpture Man Throwing Disk Statue ''THE DISCUS THROWER''
Total Dimensions: Height 10'' x Width 7'' Approximate Weight: 7 LBS Original Reproduction: ReproductionThis is a bronze replica of "The Discobolus of Myron" which is a famous Greek sculpture that was completed towards the end of the Severe period, circa 460-450 BC. The original Greek bronze is lost. It is known through numerous Roman copies, both full-scale ones in marble. Here a discus thrower is depicted about to release his throw. The moment thus captured in the statue is an example of rhythms, harmony and balance one that has endured a pattern of athletic energy. The potential energy expressed in this sculpture`s tightly-wound pose, expressing the moment of stasis just before the release, is an example of the advancement of Classical sculpture from Archaic. The sculpture was cast using the early method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. It is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Myron`s signature. Myron of Eleutherae (Greek) working circa 480-440 BC, was an Athenian sculptor from the mid-5th century BC. He was born in Eleutherae on the borders of Boeotia and Attica. According to Pliny`s Natural History. He worked almost exclusively in bronze, and though he made some statues of gods and heroes, his fame rested principally upon his representations of athletes, in which he made a revolution, according to commentators in antiquity, by introducing greater boldness of pose and a more perfect rhythm, subordinating the parts to the whole.

Just as I expected. Detailed. Have another by same artist: J. Moigniez
I really like this painting/sculpture. Perfect for the spot I envisioned it for. Good size, tricky to hang but we always have problems hanging our pictures. It is all metal which is fine with me. Beautiful colors, warm, reminding me od Fall my favorite season. The ballerina looks on the picture as if she was pinkish but the color changes depending on the light it can be beige or slightly pinkish. Very pretty.
Exquisitely made, facial and hair details impressive, a very nice addition to my Indian collection, overall a great buy. This is my second Indian Bust from this company. I have 10 total bronze bust
The sculpture is gorgeous. Great service. Great quality and service.
The piece is very lovely, I'm very happy I got it.
We love it.
I purchased this because I thought it looked like my gf. I’m very pleased with the erotic statue and the company I purchased it from.
When I first saw this one, I knew I had to have it. It's even nicer looking in person.
Great work of sexual art. Well done.
I believe I have purchased 4 western themed bronzes over the years from Bronzhaus . Everyone is an absolute masterpiece!

This is a superbly crafted bronze bust of Lincoln. Supply internationally was also lightning fast. Thank you, Bronzhaus.
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.
