Material & Manufacture process: Cast Marble
Cast Marble statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek Marble stone is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as a glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the statue design. Because the powder is so fine the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural crushed Greek Marble stone, which gives it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are finished by hand to ensure the finest quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant, doesn’t have bubbles, will not crack, and can be washed with most cleaning agents.
Please note: Our statues are not carved. Natural marble statues are hand carved and command a very hefty price. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the majority public.
Our sculpture is a reproduction (in smaller scale) of the famous marble statue known as «The sleeping Satyr», which is exhibited in the Glyptothek in Munich, Germany
The sleeping Satyr (220 BC), sculptor unknown, Barberini Faun (a roman word for the Satyr), Marble 215 cm. The sculpture was found in the Mausoleum of Hadrian in the 17th century. A Satyr (a follower of Dionysos), drunken, in as some say provocative pose.
