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. Alabaster 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.
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.
