A fascinating and eye catching sculpture. A large eagle spreads his wings and prepares for flight. His large wings arch high above him. His talons prepare to release the wood it clutches. His intense glare sets in the distance on some welcoming prey. 100% bronze and handmade,this two-toned brown and silver  patina sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and mounted on a marble base. It features the signature J. Moigniez.   Jules Moigniez was born in Senlis sur L`Oise, France in 1835 and died in Saint-Martin-du-Teire, France on May 29, 1894.  The son of a metal gilder, Moigniez was a student of Paul Comolera.  He debuted at the Exposition Universelle in 1855 with Pointer and Pheasant and Falcon and Weasel each in plaster.  He contributed regularly to the Paris Salon from 1859 to 1892 during which he exhibited over thirty sculptures including Pointer and Pheasant and Falcon and Weasel in bronze. He was awarded an honorable mention at the Salon and received a medal in London at the Great Exposition in 1862. He lived most of his life in Paris. During his career he was widely popular in France, England and America. His bronzes were most decorative, particularly those of game birds.  He also sculpted dogs, farm animals and equestrian groups. Moigniez`s dogs reflected the "naturalism" style of Pierre Jules Mene.  His bird sculptures were reminiscent of paintings by deHondecoeter, Casteels and Snyders. His sculptures of birds reflect dynamic movement, as if captured through a high-speed photographic portrait. Moigniez bronzes were edited, (cast), by the foundry his father opened in 1857. A wide variety of patinations, including silver plate, golden bronze and gilding were unique to these life time casts.

Beautiful AMERICAN Eagle

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.

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?

Unfortunately, we do not buy pieces from the public.  To ensure the highest quality, we only sell brand new pieces that we commission ourselves, or buy directly from artists and manufacturers we know and trust.
