Greek bronze sculptures were created through a cire perdue (lost wax) method. The sculpture was first created in wax, then enclosed in a clay shell. After heating, the wax would melt and leave a clay mold which would then be filled with bronze. Because bronze could be melted down and reused, very few bronze sculptures have survived from ancient times.

The reproductions offered by Talaria Enterprises are made from compound stone with a bronze finish applied in multiple patinas of color. They are an affordable alternative to actual bronze sculptures made from the cire perdue method which would cost ten to fifteen times more!

Etruscan Thin Boy Statue, Arte Etrvska Collection

The slender figure of an Etruscan boy became the most famous stretched figure thanked to the story of its discovery; a farmer found the figure while working his land near Volterra in 1870. He used it as a fire poker for years. Many artists, including the famous Italian sculptor Giacometti have taken inspiration from the beautiful, abstract forms of the famous Etruscan stretched figures.

Etruscan Man with Hat Thin Statue, Arte Etrvska Collection
Inspired by the large Greek statues of nude men (kouroi) and clothed women (korai), a flourishing tradition developed in Etruria. However, in contrast to the Greeks, the Etruscans did not seek to perfectly represent the human body. They emphasized the appearance of their sculptures in an almost expressionistic way. The peak of this obstinate conception of art was reached with the so-called stretched figures: elongated, flat figures, usually made between the 5th and the 2nd century BC. They originated in Southern Etruria, where small figures were cut from thin sheets of metal starting in the 8th century

Etruscan Woman Thin Statue, Arte Etrvska Collection
In pre-Roman Italy what we know today as Tuscany was in-habited by the Etruscans, a people who developed their own distinctive culture from the 8th century BC. The Etruscans earned their considerable wealth through overseas trade in ceramics, wine and iron. They were notorious pirates. From the 5th century, they were increasingly attracted by the Celts from one side and the Italians from the other. A fleet from Syracuse destroyed their seaports, which was the start of the gradual decline of the independent Etruscan culture. By the 3rd century, the Etruscans had come under Roman Rule.
