This is a bronze sculpture of Botero's Leda and the Swan which is a motif from Greek mythology in which Zeus came to Leda in the form of a swan. The story goes that Zeus took the form of a swan and raped or seduced Leda on the same night she slept with her husband King Tyndareus. According to later Greek mythology, Leda bore Helen and Polydeuces, children of Zeus. Leda is seen nude laying on her back in complete resignation to the stare of the seducing god Zeus. The sculpture's artistic approach resembles that of Botero's figurative and proportionally exaggerated objects. The sculpture was cast using the archaic method of lost-wax casting and finished with a brown patina stain for preservation. It is mounted upon a black marble base with the replica artist Botero signature.

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.

Do you do custom work?

Custom work is available in some cases.  Please contact us with the details of the job.

Can I sell you one of my own pieces?

Unfortunately, we do not buy pieces from the public.  To ensure the highest quality, we only sell brand new pieces that we commission ourselves, or buy directly from artists and manufacturers we know and trust.
