& 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 .
is a based on the famous sculpture, known as «The Farnese
Hercules», which is exhibited in in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Naples.
Hercules (Italian: Ercole
Farnese) is an ancient statue of Hercules, probably an enlarged copy made in
the early third century AD and signed by Glykon, who is otherwise unknown; the
name is Greek but he may have worked in Rome. Like much Ancient Roman
sculpture it is a copy or version of a much older Greek original that was well
known, in this case a bronze by Lysippos that would have been made in the
fourth century BC. The Farnese Hercules is a massive marble statue, following a
lost original cast in bronze through a
method called lost wax casting. It depicts
a muscular, yet weary, Hercules leaning on
his club, which has the skin of the Nemean lion draped over
it. In myths about Heracles, killing the lion was his first task. He has just
performed one of the last of The Twelve Labours, which is
suggested by the apples of the Hesperides he holds
behind his back.
