A stunning pair of large classical gilded bronze maiden statues.
Profuse gilding is used to adorn the maidens in shimmering gold classical garb.
Their uplifted arms support similarly gilded crown-like tazzas.
The statues are set on attractive black and white marble bases.
These bronzes are hot cast using the 'lost wax' ('cire perdue') process.
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.
