Napoleon Crossing the Alps Bronze Replica Statue Sculpture 14" x 15"
Total Dimensions: Height 14'' x Width 15'' Approximate Weight: 22 LBS Original Reproduction: OriginalNapoleon Crossing the Alps (also known as Napoleon at the Saint-Bernard Pass or Bonaparte Crossing the Alps) is the title given to five versions of an oil on canvas equestrian portrait painted by the French artist Jacques-Louis David which were originally commissioned by the Spanish Ambassador to France. Like the paintings, this bronze shows an idealized view of the real crossing that Napoleon`s army made through the St. Bernard Pass in 1800, which enabled the French to surprise the Austrian army and win victory at the Battle of Marengo in June of 1800. As in David`s paintings, this bronze references Hannibal (Annibal), the great Carthaginian general who marched into the Italian peninsula during the Second Punic War and won a great battle against the Romans. Napoleon was known to have quoted Hannibal and likened his attack on the Austrians to Hannibal`s attack upon the Romans. This sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and has a brown patina and is signed . It is mounted on a black marble base and is signed Aldo Vitaleh,sure to draw an eye of all those around. It makes a great gift for a history buff or a political lover!
Had strong mixed emotions. The face and body surface were well finished. The coat and hat were rough and appear untreated from the casting. There was an attempt to high-light the outer-edge of the coat for example but was poorly executed. Almost returned the sculpture except that the overall portions of the elements were very good. So, I kept it.
This is a very attractive bronze figurine in approximately 1/6 scale. The face is exceptionally well done as is the rest of the figure. It arrived promptly in perfect condition.
This was a present for a friend as a surprise. She loves it! I'll get to see it in October; can't wait. ; )

Having purchased 9+ bronze pieces from Bronzhaus in the last few months, I can tell you that I have had nothing but a stellar experience across the board. Quality of service, fast shipping, and excellent customer service. I only had one issue with a piece damaged by UPS, and Bronzhaus sent me a perfect replacement. Great prices and selection. Don’t hesitate to buy!
I really like the lion I received last week. Great value for what I paid. It sits next to my fireplace.

I bought this beautifuly detailed piece after seeing it over a year ago. I was very happy to be able to add it to my small collection, it will be treasured. It wasn't my first purchase from Bronzhaus, they offer good prices, great quality, quick delivery and package very well. Many thanks.
This bronze rhino sculpture is awesome! It is a Dali design and it is of high-quality. I love it! It is one of my favorite sculptures in my collection. The seller is great and ships fast.
Beautiful bronze casting of the American National Bird. The Bald Eagle. I have seen many of these Eagles in Alaska, and this casting catches all the features of this beautiful bird. The marble base is also of great quality, which adds to the overall superb presentation. I highly recommend the BRONZHAUS to anyone contemplating a fine quality, and eye "catching" display piece.
A very, very nice piece!
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.
