About this item

There is no mistaking the unique quality and style of this exquisite life-size statue of a boy reading while sitting casually on a outdoor bench, dating from the last quarter of the 20th century.

It will soon become the focal point of your garden and is sure to receive the maximum amount of attention wherever it is placed.

The statue is made from verdigris (green) and dark brown patinated solid bronze and the bench incorporates a lot of intricate texture resembling the wooden beams.

This high quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.

Lost Wax Method

sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
