Metropolitan Galleries was approached by a creative development team working on an Astronaut camp located in Florida to develop a walking boy bronze sculpture to be placed within the facility placed in walking position with an Astronaut exhibit.
Our portraiture artist drew out the desired boy sculpture concept from his posture to the details of his face and hair. Following the completed drawings, our production of the sculpture began by developing a clay mold of the desired sculpture. Through the ancient and traditional method of lost wax bronze casting, the process of the walking boy bronze sculpture began.
After the sculpture was completed, the final finish (also known as the patina) is fired into the sculpture with an open flame. This walking boy bronze sculpture is shown in a medium-brown patina.
