    stunning bronze sculpture of classical maiden picanult

    A magnificent bronze sculpture of a classical maiden made from the lost wax process (cire perdue).

The maiden in her flowing robe is leaning on an urn resting on a classical column.

It is a recast of an original and signed Picanult.

The attention to detail is fantastic and the sculpture, set on an attractive marble base, is extremely lifelike.

 49 cm high 28 cm wide 16 cm deep
Sometimes called by the French name of ''cire perdue'' or the Latin, ''cera perduta'' is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artist''s sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
