Our Caryatid Column Bust Sculpture (Medium) is a reproduction masterpiece of an original. The Caryatid is a female sculpted figure, with the function of column or pillar, with an entablature resting on her head. The origin of our caryatid serves as a finishing touch for the pilasters that form part of the fence surrounding the building of the Ministry of Agriculture in Madrid. This building dates from the end of the 19th century and was designed by the architect Ricardo Velázquez Bosco.
An amazing sculpture reproduction of high quality cast marble finished with great attention to details. With an authentic ancient look achieved by a terracotta patina, the sculpture is just like the ones you can find in an archaeological museum. An authentic piece of art that will transform your gardens and interiors.
INDOOR & OUTDOOR INSTALLATION
Our life-size statues are balanced on the base in order to stand alone safely outdoors & indoors. If extra safety is required, the base can be fixed with a variety of methods resin glue, cementitious glue, or mechanical means such as iron bars or hooks. For indoor, we recommend pure white color as it is the most lightful. For outdoor we recommend aging patina only if the architecture of the building matches with beige tones. Pure white color is fitting in the majority of the cases.
In order to keep an outdoor statue with the best look possible, wax or polyurethane spray can be applied once a year. During cold winters, the accumulation of ice in the crevices needs to be avoided. Crevises should be salted to deter the ice from expanding or simply be covered.
ABOUT THE MATERIAL
Our large size sculptures are produced by a unique and proprietary dry casting process. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural marble which gives it a look and feel of natural marble. The sculpture is not completely solid in order to reduce cost and weight, with a strong solid thickness suitable for indoor and outdoor. They are finished and patinated by hand.
