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.
Welsh Griffin is a great reminder to some of my veried ancestry
Great, heavy bronze.
This sculpture, boy riding the turtle, is 97 percent good. There is a slight scuff/discoloration on the boy’s right shoulder, and upon close examination one can see either glue or discoloration where the boy’s bottom is connected to the turtle. I thought about calling Jan about this, but decided I can live with it. It probably does not, however, bode well for future orders. Thanks.
I recently made my first purchase for a gift. I accidentally made an error when purchasing and once I noticed I contacted Bronzhaus customer service. They were empathetic, professional, efficient and super easy to work with.
I enjoyed my experience and am very pleased with the item I purchased. I will use them again
A really different take on Justice! Love it.
The product & transfer service are very good !
Very beautiful statue and well detailed,Very happy with m purchase !!!
Very please with the sculpture. Great detail and quality.
I adore my Torso of Summer by Aristide Maillol! (the original is held by the Getty Museum). Although it is a beautiful recreation of just the torso of a beautiful woman, it will always remind me of his collection of the four seasons. Bronzhaus does the most remarkable bronzes of new and antique pieces of art statuary. I have several pieces and love them all. The beautiful nude statue holds a place of honor in my foyer. I am so proud of all of my Bronzhaus pieces! Thank you so much! (And I must say that the prices are outstanding!)
I love fine art. My grandfather was a professional artists, and when I was little he would take me to galleries. I fell in love with bronze statues. They are expensive however. BRONHAUS has made it possible for me to own beautiful bronze statues, that I usually couldn't afford. Ive ordered three statues from them, all simply beautiful and affordable. Thank you BRONHAUS for this opportunity you have given me, PLUS fast secure shipping and peace of mind for when my new statue is on its way!!!!
Not really huge but there is rarely room in a lawyers office for something big. Nicely made.
This piece was well made and very attractive.
Everthing about the sculpture is amazing. Thank you Bronzhaus
This is a pretty and pleasant statue. Very nice on my desk.
Very nice, tasteful erotic nude bronze artwork. Very detailed, even down to the fingers. Packed for shipping well. No complaints in the least.
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.
