Bronze and Marble Statue Information, Guidance and Tips
Statues make for an elegant, long-lasting memorial that can be enjoyed for the ages - even by those who may not be familiar with the deceased. Statues, in fact, are not necessarily reserved for the dead. Some customers have installed statues in favorite garden spots or at the entrances to special buildings. But, no matter what the purpose, there is no doubt that statues bring heavenly images to life. We offer statues made of three different, long-lasting materials: marble, bronze and fiberglass. All three of the materials enable sculptures to depict age old religious scenes and symbols with great beauty and grace. Images of Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, Michelangelo’s Pieta, and the Crucifixion are all common on every type of material available. Angels are also a popular symbol with sculptures and are readily available in a variety of poses and scenes in the statue selection we offer. Marble statues are all made by Italian artists of very sturdy bonded marble, and bronze statues are constructed using the famous lost wax bronze casting method handed down through the centuries. Fiberglass statues are a relatively new offering, and their most enduring trait is the ability to capture color permanently in a way that few other materials can.
