A child of the past at play frozen in time. A young boy plays hoop rolling as he runs down the street. Hoop rolling ( also called Trundling) was a sport and popular child’s game, in which a large hoop is rolled by a chosen implement. The aim of the game was to keep the hoop upright for long periods of time or to do tricks. Dressed like many young boys of the early 1900’s, he wears rain boots, shorts and a well-detailed hooded sailors coat with a bow in the center of his chest. Sailor suits and attire were very popular at the time. He has short hair that frames his cheerful face. A beret sits back on the crown of his head, leaving his hair free beneath it . He is a brown patina but with touches of gold in his hair and his round face. 100% bronze handmade and detailed, this sculpture was cast using the “Lost Wax Method“. It is mounted on a square black marble base and signed by the artist D.H. Chiparus.


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.
