The elephant can be envisioned trekking slowly and majestically across the ceaseless dryness of a plain in search of a watering hole or the shade of tree. He pulls his trunk upward as he passes on by with a tender passivity to his eyes. For years the elephant has been known as a sacred animal in the East. As the largest animal to walk the Earth, the elephant is known as a symbol of strength and power. In Buddhist cultures, white elephants are symbolic of patience and wisdom. The Chinese see elephants as a symbol of energy, strength, and power. Ganesha is a Hindu deity with an elephant`s head. The bronze sculpture was molded using the ancient method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. The elephant is mounted upon a variegated green marble base with the artist Barye`s 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?
