Bronze garden statues
Bronze statues are still very much in demand, both indoors and outdoors. Not for nothing, of course. Bronze garden statues have an exclusive and precious appearance. In addition, the artist can indulge himself in the details of the show. The price depends on the size and whether the sculpture is made in a limited edition.
Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin. The two best known techniques for making bronze sculptures are the lost wax method and the sand casting method. No less than 20 different working phases are needed to get from model to finished bronze statue. We won’t explain them all here, but it says enough about the craftsmanship needed to make a bronze statue.
Garden sculptures animals
In many garden statues animals have been incorporated or the whole statue is a representation of a specific animal. This of course also has to do with the fact that garden statues are in a natural environment and combines well with outdoor animals. Think of the garden statue of a sheep or deer. In addition, the garden statues of animals often symbolize something. For example, statues of lions and dogs are often placed at the entrance to watch over the terrain and symbolize strength and courage. Images of birds are often very graceful and serve mainly for decoration, while an eagle statue is known as the bird of birds and stands for power.
