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 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
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
