Material and manufacturing process: cast marble
Cast marble statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek marble stone is mixed with a small amount of resin which acts as a glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the design of the statue. 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, giving it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are hand finished to ensure the best quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant, bubble free, will not crack and can be washed with most cleaning agents.
Please note: our statues are not sculpted. The 100% natural marble statues are hand carved and cost a lot of money. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the majority audience.
