Our Parthenon frieze reproduction is a copy of the ancient Block VIII of the west frieze executed on Pentelic marble by renowned Greek sculptor Phidias (ca 442–438 BC). The relief depicts a rider, possibly Athenian Cavalry commander, trying to control his horse. The image of this relief occupied the central block of the west frieze of the Parthenon.
Our frieze reproduction is a impressive addition to the wall as a display of classical artwork.
With an authentic ancient look achieved by a light 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 bright. 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.
