Our Dionysus Bust is a reproduction masterpiece of classical art. The face and hair of this Dionysus bust is very detailed and is different to the typical appearance of this God, frequently depicted as a young man. The style of the sculpture is Neo-Attic, with a much mature and heavily draped Dionysus. Several copies of this archaic style statue remain, for example in the National museum of Rome, a Pentelic marble copy in the British Museum, and also fragments found in the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens.
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.
