This is a bronze sculpture of Artemis the Hellenic goddess of hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women. She often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. However, in this representation, she can be imagined valiantly walking through a deep forest, putting a loose strand of hair in its place, while one of her hunting dogs yaps at her feet. Artemis got her hunting dogs from Pan in the forest of Arcadia. Pan gave Artemis two black-and-white dogs, three reddish ones, and one spotted one - these dogs were able to hunt even lions. She was cast using the ancient method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. She is mounted upon a black marble base with the artist Pierre Le Faguay`s signature.

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.
