THIS BEAUTIFUL SCULPTURE IS REPRODUCED FROM THE ORIGINAL, AND IS A MAGNIFICENT DEPICTION OF A MUSICAL TROUBADOUR. SHE PLAYS HER FLUTE WHILE TELLING A POETIC STORY. SHE WEARS RENAISSANCE CLOTHING, A TUNIC WITH A BUTTON UP VEST AND A CLOTH LIKE BELT, AND TIGHTS WITH SOCK LIKE SLIPPERS WITH LACES AROUND THE ANKLES. THE TUNIC FALLS LOW AND EXPOSES HER COLLAR BONE. HER DELICATE LITTLE FEMININE FINGERS HOLD HER FLUTE WHILE SHE BLOWS A LOVELY TUNE. SHE STANDS ON WHAT SEEMS TO BE A CUSHIONING BLANKET. SHE WEARS A RENAISSANCE HAT WITH A FEATHER, IT HOLD HER HAIR BACK TO EXPOSE HER DELICATE FACE. SHE WAS CASTED USING THE "LOST WAX METHOD" AND HAS VERY FINE DETAILS GIVING HER ANTIQUE DEALER QUALITY. HER PATINA IS DARK BROWN WITH HIGHLIGHTS OF GOLD. THE DETAIL OF THIS SCULPTURE MAKES IT A WORK OF QUALITY. THE RED MARBLE BASE ADDS TO THE REFINEMENT OF SCULPTURE. JEAN-DÉSIRÉ RINGEL WAS BORN IN ILZACH IN THE UPPER RHINE IN 1849 AND DIED IN STRASBOURG IN 1916. HE IS A FRENCH SCULPTOR AND ENGRAVER AND THE AUTHOR OF MANY WORKS INCLUDING A LOT OF REPRESENTATIONS OF FAMOUS PEOPLE. MANY OF HIS WORKS ARE PRESERVED AT THE MUSÉE DU LOUVRE, THE MUSÉE DES BEAUX-ARTS DE STRASBOURG, AND THE MUSÉE D'ORSAY.

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.
