As the lonely cute Sparrow stands on one leg, he looks around attentively for someone to save him. It’s almost as if his one foot is stuck in the cement and he curls his other leg up to avoid it from getting stuck in the cement as well. Scientists may beg to differ following the theory that birds stand on one leg to conserve body heat & energy. The reason for this is that the legs and the head are the only part of the body that is exposed. But if you look closely at this Sparrow the left foot is blended into the block not showing any detail of the claws. While looking at the right leg and the foot the claws are curled and pulled toward his chest. The Sculpture is coated with a dark brown patina & highlights of gold. The gold highlights give dimension to the sparrow and draw attention to the detail of the feathers in the tail and the beak. This bronze piece was crafted using the “Lost Wax Method” it is signed by Milo, A Noted Spanish artesian who makes all his pieces by hand, and sits atop a square black marble base. Save a sparrow and give him a warm home to stay today.

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?
