What’s the appeal of a custom portrait bust in bronze?
Let’s face it, there’s nothing like a bronze statue. Nothing stands the test of time like bronze sculpture. Nothing conveys the authority, the richness, and the enduring beauty of the subject like bronze.
The great civilizations of the ancient world created custom sculptures in bronze. And the art they created has outlived them. In fact, the most oldest known bronze sculpture, “Dancing Girl” from the Harappan Civilization, dates back to 2500 BC. And it still looks amazing! (Wikipedia link.)
Who would want a custom bronze sculpture?
My clients have commissioned me to create custom bronze statues of a beloved family members, of friends whom they wish to celebrate. I’ve also sculpted historical figures like first lady Ellen Wilson to put on display in her hometown of Rome, Georgia.
Many companies commission custom bronze sculptures of their founders or other important figures. Few things can convey authority and an established history like a bronze bust in the company lobby. Or, better yet, a full sized custom bronze statue outdoors in the entry area.
A custom sculpture could also a wonderful addition to schools, churches, and public buildings like libraries and courthouses.
