Uh oh! The well has got her skirt! This charming little sculpture by German artisan, Preiss depicts a woman who has just finished getting water from a water well pump. She has a bucketful of water and as she turned to walk away, her skirt got caught on the pump from the well, lifting it up and revealing her lack of undergarments. She turns her head in surprise and her reaction is captured marvelously here. The water has fallen out of the bucket and to make the situation even more entertaining, her bosom has also fallen out of her dress. The detail on this piece is exquisite, down to the details of the girl`s heels and knee high stockings and to the fine texture of the wood grain on the well and the wooden planks she is standing on. Her face has been sculpted to bring out her true beauty and her hair is the perfect style to accentuate her slender face. Signed "Preiss" in the bronze.


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.
