Material & Manufacture process: Cast Alabaster
All our alabaster statues have 90% Greek Alabaster (Natural Mineral) in them. Of course the alabaster powder needs to stick together and 10% of the sculpture is a glue or resin compound that when set creates a finely detailed sculpture that is then hand finished to perfection. The alabaster powder and resin are mixed and placed into a mould of the original sculpture. Because the powder is so fine the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. It looks and feels like hand carved marble. 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: It is not a carved statue.
Please do not confuse it with calcite alabaster variety which is also known as onyx-marble, Egyptian alabaster, or Oriental alabaster.
This statue is based on sculpture of David by Michelangelo, which is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504.It is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft) marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David, a favoured subject in the art of Florence.
