The beautiful woman can be seen coming down a forested mountainside to a clearing where a stream trickles above and around water-polished rocks. Struggling to keep the bundle of wildflowers she has collected in a bouquet, she gathers the hem of her skirt with both hands, to cross without getting wet. There is natural essence to the sculpture; it's realistic intentions created a work of art composed with factors of vitality. She was captured using the ancient method of lost-wax casting and stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. She is mounted upon a variegated black marble base with the artist A. Moreau's signature. Auguste Moreau (French,1834 - 1917) was born in Dijon in the early 19th century, he studied under Mathurin Moreau. Auguste Moreau worked as a sculptor and specialized in figures, statuettes and groups, mainly in marble. He made his debut at the 1861 Salon in Paris and continued to play an active part in the Salon des Artistes Francis as a member of the Societe des Artistes Francais until 1910.

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.
