This sculpture is entirely handmade, using the so-called lost wax method. Despite the great care with which our bronze sculptures are made, there is a possibility that this figure may slightly differ from other such sculptures shown in the photos.

It is an excellent work, and communing with it gives you a lifetime of pleasure.
