Hercules Sculpture Introduction:
This bronze Hercules sculpture shows us an image of Hercules subduing a Cretan bull. Bronze shows off the power of Hercules very well, and people are attracted by its muscles. Hercules is known to be the most popular hero in Greece, and he is celebrated in stories, sculptures, paintings and coins. So such a sculpture would be a great outdoor decoration and a symbol of strength that would be loved by people.
The Story Behind the Sculpture:
This bronze Hercules sculpture shows the seventh labor of Hercules. When Hercules reached Crete, he easily fell the bull to the ground and drove it back to King Eurystheus. Eurystheus set the bull free. It roamed around Greece, terrorizing people, and ended up in Marathon near Athens. Hercules then drove the bull back to Mycenae, where the Athenian hero Theseus killed the Cretan bull.
How Did YouFine Replicate this Sculpture for You?
First, we would confirm the design with you. Next, a 1:1 clay model would be made. The clay model is the basis for bronze sculpture making and could determine the details of the sculpture. The third step is to over-mold the wax shell. Generally, we use silicone to turn over places with fine details. This ensures the greatest possible restoration of detail. The fourth step is to fix the wax. The waxing-up step is also very important. To prevent some details from being lost during casting. That’s why our artists retouch the wax-up multiple times to make sure the details are still there.
The fifth step is to pour wax to make a wax mold: after the mold is turned over, pour the melted paraffin into the plaster mold or silicone mold that has been made, and disassemble the mold after the paraffin cools. This completes the wax model. The following steps are pouring bronze – welding, grinding and polishing – coloring and packaging. Our coloring method is chemical coloring, so we could ensure that the color would not only not fade, but would become more and more attractive. And we choose to use bronze to make the sculpture, the copper content is relatively high. So you don’t have to worry about the quality of the statue.
