Bronze was once one of the most popular materials for creating sculptures, primarily due to the detail the artist can capture and the strength of the metal. These sculptures are cast, where the artist creates a mould of the sculpture and fills it with liquified bronze. The bronze hardens and the mould is removed, leaving the sculpture in its place.
The level of detail in bronze is made possible by the metal alloy’s unique properties. As the bronze cools, it expands, filling in even the finest lines in the mould. A well crafted bronze sculpture can have details that are lifelike, and because of its strength, those details often withstand the tests of time.
