This original sculpture was started in Los Angeles, CA and was finished in Hampton New York. It was inspired by the person behind the facade that we all love and know so well. As a film maker, freelance artist and art teacher, I am very motivated to look deeper into all subjects, and did so with Marilyn Monroe here. Portraying her realistically in bronze was important to me to show the power that her image has had in our society and in the entertainment industry, but keeping her with a more solemn look was not only to be a bit sultry, but to show the woman behind the image. As another woman who has also been working in the film industry, albeit, behind the scenes, Marilyn and her life for me represent a beautiful and tragic story that reminds us all how short life is, yet how much impact we can have. It is also a reminder to remain true to oneself, and to be careful who and what we surround ourselves with. As powerful as her image remains, to me, she was just a real girl, who got lost in a tumultuous world. We can all choose to see her how we wish, with different facets of her life being important to us. So this was my tribute to her life, and her story, and one I will never truly know. The mystery continues. But the memory remains. I hope that the painstaking hours that went into her creation can bring joy and thought into someones life. She Is Made Of 100% Solid Bronze And Rests Upon A Solid Black Marble Base. Cast Using An Ancient Technique Called The "Lost Wax Method"


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.
