Perseus and Pegasus prepare to take flight. Greek mythology tells many tales of Perseus exploits as the hero who battled and defeated many monsters. The most popular tale is that of him slaying the Gorgon Medusa. Perseus was the son of Zeus and thus a god in his own right. Many famous images of him features the decapitated head of Medusa. Pegasus was his trusty sidekick. The winged horse was sired by Poseidon in his role as horse-god. This sculpture depicts Perseus clutching Pegasus` mane, as Pegasus gallops at full speed, preparing to take flight. He lifts Perseus from the ground. Slung over his side is the head of Medusa, Perseus` souvenir from their lethal battle. The handmade detail of this sculpture brings out the intriguing beauty in Pegasus. Each feather of his wide strong wings can be traced. You can see the lines of his muscles in his legs and the curl of his wild hair. This sculpture would make the perfect gift for any mythology enthusiast. This 100% bronze brown patina sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and mounted on a round black marble base.

FAQ's

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.
