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. 100% Natural marble statues are hand carved and command a very hefty price. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the majority public .
Hercules and Hesione Myth
According to the greek mythology Hesione was a Trojan princess, daughter of King Laomedon of Troy and sister of Priam. The Trojan Cetus was a giant sea-monster sent by Poseidon to plague the land of Troy as punishment for King Laomedon’s refusal to pay him for the building of the city’s walls. An oracle declared that the only way to be rid of the beast was to offer the king’s daughter as sacrifice. Laomedon did so, chaining Hesione to the rocks, where she was rescued by Herakles who despatched the beast with a fish-hook or volley of arrows
The statue is a copy (in small scale) of the sculpture that is exhibited at the Michaelerplatz entrance at the Hofburg Palace, Vienna, Austria.
