This amazing sculpture of a young boy riding a turtle is amazing. The details on this piece looks incredible from the turtle closed eyes to the boys joyful face. He takes a little ride down the pathway around his house, he is completely nude. The boy wraps a rope through the turtles mouth for he can have a good grip of him, to ride him better. The turtle seems very frustrated and annoyed, but since that`s his owner he has not an option. The boy enjoys bothering his pet and taking full advantage of his size before they both grow older. This sculpture is casted using the ancient "Lost Wax Method" and its handmade in 100% bronze. Mounted atop a nice black round marble base, with A. Mercie signature.

Not too bad

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.


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?
