A beautiful large bronze sculpture with vedigris patination of an athlete throwing a discus in the Greco Roman style.

The attention to detail is fantastic and this sculpture, set on an attractive marble base, is extremely lifelike.
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 artist's 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.
