Bronze Sculpture For Enduring Elegance

By Roger Santos

The thought of bronze sculpture may take you back to the Greeks and Romans. With their art living on in museums after millennia, it might be hard to imagine the medium in contemporary gardens or homes. Actually, individuals are practicing the art right now in different parts of the world, creating pieces the thoughtful buyer with a bit of money to spend would gladly add to a outdoor or indoor display. Look on-line or go into specialty shops to have a look.

What you might find yourself drawn to are collections made using the wax process. This enables the artist to instill life into faces, movement into clothes, and texture into hair or fur. Though elegant and expensive, feel free to set one of these up outside in defiance of all weathers. They endure the elements admirably.

Some creations seem made for that special person who cannot sit still. An angel or a child at rest with a fishing rod may be enough to inspire some restfulness into even the most restless individual. Others express a sense of peace through the quiet beauty of children enjoying a snuggle with their puppy or two children on a bench reading together. Enjoy shades which one may not immediately associate with bronze thanks to patina coloring, allowing for a wide variety from bluish-white to chocolate brown.

Indulge in nostalgia for yourself. Did you grow up with a gaggle of friends, girls and boys, playing leap frog in the park? What about climbing trees: do you recall adventures with friends into the cherry tree on a nearby orchard in search of forbidden fruit and the thrill of mischief? Recapture youth and share it with those you love, or make new friends over a common connection to those carefree, simple days gone by.

For animal lovers, scenes combine children with many creatures. Capture the moment: a girl feeding birds from her hand; a little boy cuddling with a snuggly pet. The texture of wings, coat, the movement of a tail: all of these can be expressed through the medium of bronze sculpture done well.

The viewer may feel many different emotions thanks to the skill behind these creations, including whimsy. Meanwhile, in spite of their beauty, bronze art can serve a purpose too. Functions include mail boxes and fountains in styles far more interesting and unexpected than the prosaic little boy peeing into a bucket.

These are especially good gift ideas for the cat, dog, horse or bird lover in your life. Portrait Sculpture Bronze sculpture is not just a remnant of ancient civilizations. Select an angel bearing delicate wings as a gift for the spiritual family member.
