& Manufacture process: Cast Alabaster
Alabaster statues are made from a
composite material in which natural crushed Greek Alabaster stone
is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as a glue. Αlabaster
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 .
