The Bronze Hummingbird Quartet is a wonderful garden sculpture of four Hummingbirds on a branch. It is extremely well done and it is quite arresting. Two of the birds are perched on the branch and two are in flight and each has ruby eyes. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. Inspired by French garden artifacts this sculpt is a terrific addition to any garden setting inside or outside and ideally placed on tabletop. Place on a mantle, sideboard or use as a dining table centerpiece indoors or place on a patio side table or stand outdoors.
The Bronze Hummingbird Quartet are cast by the traditional, Lost Wax Bronze Casting method (links to a full description of the method). This labor intensive and time consuming method of casting bronze statues, ensure pristine quality and vivid detail. This Bronze Hummingbird Quartet Sculpture features intricate, hand forged details with a beautiful brown fire-applied patina.
Applying patina to bronze using the French method (fire and heat) is an age old traditional skill requiring expert craftsmanship. Each patina is hand applied and the patination result may vary making each sculpt unique. All bronze statuary will develop a natural patina when left in natures elements. The aged patina on bronzes is often desired, but can be prevented by care and cleaning of the bronze statue by applying beeswax or other polish to prevent a patina from forming.
The Bronze Hummingbird Quartet is available in the Classic French Brown Bronze patina as shown.
