Introducing the magnificent statue titled "Flying Mercury" by the renowned artist Giambologna, celebrated for his masterful portrayal of action, movement, and exquisite surface finishes. Among his most famous creations are the four versions of Mercury, a captivating depiction of the god poised on one foot, supported by a zephyr. In this extraordinary sculpture, Mercury is adorned with a winged petasus on his head and winged sandals, symbolizing his swiftness in flight. He holds the caduceus, the staff bestowed upon him by Apollo, which has come to symbolize the practice of medicine. With one arm raised, pointing towards the heavens, Giambologna skillfully captures a gesture borrowed from classical rhetoric, showcasing his unique artistic style. The refinement and sophistication of this sculpture are rarely found in recasted bronzes. Crafted using the revered "Lost Wax Method," it stands as a testament to the meticulous artistry employed in its creation. The sculpture is mounted on a magnificent heavy marble base, accentuated with a delightful bronze trim, enhancing its overall visual appeal. Signed Giambologna , this sculpture holds both artistic and historical significance. Giambologna, also known as Jean Boulogne, Giovanni da Bologna, or Giovanni Bologna, was a highly acclaimed sculptor of the late Renaissance or Mannerist style. Born in Douai, Flanders, he honed his skills in Rome, studying classical antiquity and drawing inspiration from the works of Michelangelo. Immerse yourself in the captivating beauty of "Flying Mercury," a masterpiece that combines refined surfaces, elegant lines, and cool elegance. Own a piece of art history and experience the artistic brilliance of Giambologna, a sculptor who has left an indelible mark on the world of sculpture.


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.
