Sign Nude Diana the Hunter with Hunting dog Bronze Sculpture Marble Base Statue
Total Dimensions: Height 12'' x Width 9'' Approximate Weight: 8 LBS Original Reproduction: ReproductionStanding tall and nude this bronze sculpture of “Diana the Hunter” was handmade and casted using the “Lost wax Method”. She poses with her small breasts exposed as she releases her bow. You see the outline of her muscles and stomach as she leans back while unleashing her arrow. Standing on her toes she balances herself, bringing detail to her legs, as she looks straight ahead at her target. Her buttocks are tight and firm, her body is slender and natural. You see her muscles in her back and her arms as she shoots her bow. Her hair is wavy but and flows back in the wild winds of the forest. At her feet are large hunting dog. This sculpture was cast using the “Lost Wax Method” and is mounted on a marble base.“Diana the Hunter” came from myths both from Italy and Greece. Most of the myths had started in Italy but were influenced quickly by Greece. It is hard to pinpoint information on Diana the Hunter as she was also known as “Diana Nemorensis” and “Artemis”. Below is a short myth about “Diana the Hunter” Diana was an ancient Italian goddess of woodland. In Capua and in Aricia, localities near Rome, there are still shrines dedicated to the Old Italian goddess. Her shrine in Aricia was on the shores of the lake Nemi. For that reason, she was named Diana Nemorensis, Diana of the Woods. The rites dedicated to her were particularly brutal. Human sacrifices were offered to the indigenous goddess. Diana`s priest was an escaped slave. Every new priest had to kill their predecessors to obtain their offices. At Capua, people believed that the preservation of the city depended on the fate of a long-lived hind sacred to the goddess. As the result of the influence of the Greek colonies in southern Italy around the sixth century BC, Diana became identified with the Greek goddess of woodland Artemis acquiring the attributes of this latter. For the Greeks, Artemis was also the personification of the Moon and her twin brother Apollo was associated with the Sun. Her father and mother were Jupiter and Latona. Diana believed her virgin body was very sacred and not for a male`s eyes. One day the hunter, Actaeon, was wandering around and stumbled upon Diana bathing. Diana became so angry; she turned Actaeon into a stag. Now he was unable to speak, and so no one would ever hear about Diana`s naked body. Actaeon was then killed by his own hunting dogs. This sculpture is signed by E. McCartain.

Having purchased 9+ bronze pieces from Bronzhaus in the last few months, I can tell you that I have had nothing but a stellar experience across the board. Quality of service, fast shipping, and excellent customer service. I only had one issue with a piece damaged by UPS, and Bronzhaus sent me a perfect replacement. Great prices and selection. Don’t hesitate to buy!
I really like the lion I received last week. Great value for what I paid. It sits next to my fireplace.
Love this little statue. It’s well made and really quite beautiful

all over the world and a good buy with 50% discount
I bought this beautifuly detailed piece after seeing it over a year ago. I was very happy to be able to add it to my small collection, it will be treasured. It wasn't my first purchase from Bronzhaus, they offer good prices, great quality, quick delivery and package very well. Many thanks.
This bronze rhino sculpture is awesome! It is a Dali design and it is of high-quality. I love it! It is one of my favorite sculptures in my collection. The seller is great and ships fast.
Beautiful bronze casting of the American National Bird. The Bald Eagle. I have seen many of these Eagles in Alaska, and this casting catches all the features of this beautiful bird. The marble base is also of great quality, which adds to the overall superb presentation. I highly recommend the BRONZHAUS to anyone contemplating a fine quality, and eye "catching" display piece.
A very, very nice piece!
The Winged Victory of Samothrace is an elegant piece of work; detailed, true to the original sitting in the Louvre, Paris. It is substantial in both weight and size, and the quality of workmanship and finishing is stunning. I bought this work a a present for my beloved brother and his wife, who are celebrating their 40 wedding anniversary this coming May; after having seen this piece, I have no doubt whatever that they will be left speechless, and breathless. In fact, I like it so well that I think I shall buy another for myself; I just simply can't bring myself to ship it off! Thank you so much Bronzehaus, your efforts most certainly do justice to one of the most famous sculptures in existence in the world today.
With Very Best Regards!

I was impressed with the size, weight and detail of this sculpture. These creatures are fierce and intimidating and this sculpture shows that. I highly recommend it!
This is one of at least a dozen Western Bronzes I have ordered from Bronzhaus. Every one has not disappointed. The buffalo may be my favorite. The detail is amazing. It was a great price and fast shipping. You cant go wrong ordering from this company.
It's design and beautiful, I love them
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.
