Material & Manufacture
process: Cast Alabaster
Cast Alabaster statues are made
from a material in which natural crushed Greek Alabaster stone is mixed with a
small quantity of resin that works as glue. Alabaster was very widely used for
small sculpture for indoor use in the ancient world, especially in Ancient Greece,
Egypt and Mesopotamia. 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 Alabaster 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.
The alabaster we use is not the calcite alabaster variety which is also known
as onyx-marble, Egyptian alabaster, or Oriental alabaster. 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 statue is based on the
famous sculpture known as « The Diana of Versailles». The Diana of Versailles is a slightly over life-size marble statue of the
Greek goddess Artemis (Latin: Diana), with a deer, located in the Musée du
Louvre, Paris. It is a Roman copy (1st or 2nd century AD) of a lost Greek bronze original
attributed to Leochares, c. 325 BC.
The statue is also known as Diana à la Biche, Diane Chasseresse (“Diana
Huntress”), Artemis of the Chase, and Artemis with the Hind.
