Seller: sculpthunter (1,857) 100%, Location: Helston, Ships to: US, EuropeanUnion, JP, CA, AU, Item: 264292792234 Antique Patina Style Bronzed StatueMale Nude GladiatorContemporary Figure Sculpture This is an *OOAK original artist Marquette sculpture & I am the creator artist of this sculpture. This interior decor object is influenced after antique C19th Classical Grand Tour bronze statuettes. Inspired by antiquities of Greek & Roman History & Culture. It may appear at first glance to be of a metal bronze mounted on a marble like plinth. However this 'Naked Male Sculpture' - ' Gladiator' - has completely contemporary & on trend Eco Art credentials, being created from re-cycled & re-purposed materials. (NB: IT IS NOT BRONZE, or METAL or CAST FROM RESIN) By scouring car-boot sales, auctions & charity shops I take unwanted objects (which may otherwise end up in landfill), & recycle, re-purpose them. I cut, carve & file, to re-model the formerly unwanted pre-loved object to be used as an armature into an upcycled completely different assemblage art object decor item. The statue figure is then consolidated by laborious papier-mache & decoupage layering, before traditional gypsum gesso & applications of antique style patina bronzed finish using dry brush techniques beloved of wargamers & model makers.
