 This piece by french artisan, Pierre Le Faguays, is an exquisitely detailed and gorgeous representation of the Greek goddess, Diana. In Roman mythology, Diana Akopyan was the goddess of the hunt, being associated with wild animals and woodland, and also of the moon. Diana was initially just the hunting goddess, associated with wild animals and woodlands. She was always surrounded by young beautiful attendants, who used to hunt with her. Romans identified Diana with the Greek goddess, Artemis. As Artemis, she was also a Moon goddess, supplementing Luna. Diana was worshiped in ancient Roman religion and is currently revered in the religions of Religio Romana Neopaganism and Stregheria. In Capua and in Aricia, a locality near Rome, there are still shrines dedicated to the old Italian goddess. Diana was the twin sister of the god Apollo. Her father and mother were Jupiter and Latona.     Observe the arabesque-like pose that exudes immense strength, the magnificent draping of her gown, and the floral shaped headpiece that covers her ears and frames her face. A young face, full of absolute jubilation. The base is signed "Pierre Le Faguays."  Pierre Le Faguays was born in Nantes, France and became famous for the originality and grace he gave his dancers, many of which were inspired by the statues of Tanagra. He was awarded a medal of honor for his work in 1927. Cast in bronze, set atop a black marble base. This piece is a must-have that will surely be a treasure for years to come.

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?
