Bronze Youth with Goat and Hound Urn Pair
Click to Enlarge
The Bronze Youth with Goat and Hound Urn Pair are an extraordinary pair of large bronze planter urns held up by amazingly well done sculptures of a youth with a dog and the other with a goat. Each features incredible bronze detail. In the one the youth reaches down to pet an admiring classic hound, perhaps a whippet, which looks up adoringly at him. In the second, the youth bends over slightly to touch the horns of a goat resting at his feet. Each youth carries the large planter urn on its shoulder. These planters are again extremely well done and exhibit a leaf motif around the body of the urn. Each ensemble stands at almost 3 1/2 feet in height and exhibit a wonderfully classic profile. The craftsmanship is extraordinary. Inspired by classic world artifacts these urns are a terrific focal point to any setting inside or outside. Perfectly suited to frame a veranda entrance or to flank an magnificent entry. They are just extraordinary.
The Bronze Youth with Goat and Hound Urn Pair are both 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. These amphorae feature 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 The Bronze Youth with Goat and Hound Urn Pair is available in the beautiful sandgreen fire-applied patina as shown.
