The bronze girl-child stands amidst the early morning fog in between the rows of a vineyard. While everyone is busy harvesting the grapes from their stalks, she covets a bundle of grapes from the basket at her feet, to enjoy by herself. Grapes can be said to have multiple meanings. They are considered symbols of festivities and immortality, probably because they are used in the production of wine. There is fine detail seen throughout the entirety of the sculpture especially seen in the realness to fabric her clothing and bonnet have. She was captured using the archaic method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina stain. She is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Milo's signature. The artist Milo lived most of his childhood in Andalusia, Spain. Influenced by an artistic family background, he began sculpting at the age of seventeen. After apprenticing with several accomplished sculptors both in America and Spain, he began his own work focusing equally on steel and bronze.

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.
