Molded directly from the original Bronze Statuette of a Horse in the Museum's collection, our reproduction captures the grace and power of the Greek Hellenistic period (about 323-31 B.C.). Animal forms were popular subjects in Greek art, in all time periods and materials. The horse, however, occupies pride of place for the frequency, understanding, and beauty with which it is represented. It continues a distinguished tradition in both concept and execution.
Made of bonded bronze (cold cast). "Cold-Cast" bronze (also referred to as "bonded bronze") is a product made from resin mixed/blended with 100% pure bronze powder to give it the appearance of the true bronze. It looks just as a "lost wax" bronze object does - both are bronzes. The cost for making a "lost wax" bronze statue is much greater than that of a "cold-cast" bronze statue. A sculpture made of "lost wax" bronze would be several times more expensive then made in cold cast bronze. Yet in either of the above materials, the casts (the final product made out of the mold) are made using the same rubber mold; which is taken from the original sculpture. Thus, the final result is exactly the same bronze sculpture, only made in a different bronze material. With the cold cast we still achieve the same bronze effect at much lower cost and thus is more affordable.
