Sculpture "Gautama Buddha", bonded bronze
The enlightened one dwells in the redemptive space with an ecstatic expression on his face and an indrawn gaze. Indian Buddhism found its Burmese sublimation with this fully spiritual figure.
Original: Staatliche Museen zu Berlin - Prussian Cultural Heritage, Museum für Indische Kunst. Kampenpnet Burma. Bronze. 19th century.
Polymer ars mundi museum replica cast by hand, with a bronzed surface. Height 31 cm.
Bronze powder is polymer-bonded. Special polishing and patination techniques give the surface of the casting an appearance similar to the bronze.
A true-to-the-original reproduction of an artwork in the same size and with the best possible material and colour uniformity.
The mould is usually taken directly from the original so that the replication reproduces even the finest details. After casting the replication, using the most appropriate method, the surface is polished, patinated, gilded or painted according to the original.
A replication of ars mundi is a recognizable copy of the original.
A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.
While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, in bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually, it is made of clay or other easily mouldable materials.
The prime time of sculpture after the Greek and Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Contemporary artists such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz also enriched sculptures with outstanding works.
