Traditional art portraits, commissioned by our staff, often gets passed down through family lines as heirlooms and makes a great way to honor someone’s life in any private, public, or business environment. Commemorative portrait sculptures capture a person's character and life energy distilled and immortalized into a permanent sculpture that is either carved in marble, stone, or sculpted in wax and then cast in bronze - preserving the memory of this important person forever! An enhanced sense of community and historical pride often emerges when current and future generations become inspired by the heroic individuals and legacies that are depicted in a statuary art piece. Sculpted and painted portrait art has been a part of the human experience since Paleolithic times [cave paintings, for example, continue to awe people to this day] and serve as an instant invitation for the art viewer to learn something about the person, or other art subject, that is being honored through sculpture or paint. Throughout human history artists have taken people living during their time and immortalized them with a realistic portrait sculpture with the likeness of the individual. In the age before photographs, only artists could re-create a person as they would have appeared at that time, or stage, in their lifetime largely through either a portrait painting, or sculpted portrait - we provide both art services! It is through honoring the people, events, and places where our history was made that we can remember those who came before us and those that have contributed something meaningful. Anyone making our present world a better place to live deserves to be celebrated with a portrait! At StatueSculptures.com we believe that when people look at a portrait, whether sculpted or painted, that they should be able to learn something meaningful in the expressions and personality of the person that was depicted, by our team of sculptors and artists. When a portrait sculptor, or artist, immortalizes people during a specific era while they were living, this known as a “living portrait“ in the art world. When a portrait is based on historical events that came before them a kind of alchemic passing of knowledge transpires where past events inspire the artist to work during his time to inspire future generations as the artwork survives for hundreds (if not thousands) of years. There are several different portrait art styles that have been consistent throughout human history with their distinct differences including: classical heroic, realistic (veristic), abstract, and tribal art. The Greeks used a characteristic style that emphasized the more idealizing elements of the portrait subject, known as “classicizing.“ Classical sculpting methods were choosen to accommodate the Greeks own personal tastes and to replicate the divine god-like images from their culture. Classicism, a.k.a. classical art, in sculpture typically seeks to be formal and somewhat restrained with a high regard for antiquity; Setting the standard for which the classicists emulated in their art, particularly during the Age of Reason and the Age of Enlightenment. Sculptors using this style of art would create a more idealized character rather than an exact and realistic portrait of how the subject actually looked at the time. Hellenistic portraits, to a large extent, are the best known works of Greek sculpture art and belong mostly to a very specific period of just a few hundred years in ancient Greece - before the Vikings and other invaders disrupted the production of art through war and conquest. Hellenistic art became active and dynamic as it realistically displayed a wide range of emotions and it has a high degree of visual impressability. The portrayal of painful moments and dynamically expressed emotions is the basis of most of the sculpted Greek portrait statues. With expressive three-dimensional compositions, the Greek sculptors created and maintained their distinct sense of classical hyper-realism. Greek sculptors and master artists were relatively loose and explorative in their portrait sculptures while representing the character of their subjects with dynamic themes such as: idealized beauty, victorious confidence, physical struggle against an adversary, pain and suffering, sleep, and even old age. The post-classical veristic art style, on the other hand, takes a more naturalistic approach, especially in portraitures, by incorporating an extreme form of realism quite consistantly. Veristic styled portrait artworks made at that time show that a more realistic form of sculpting, or rather carving in marble, was favored over likening the subject to a god (as in classical style art). Romans were, especiall the political figures of the late Replican period, sculpted showing all of their human imperfections and assymmetries. A veristic sculpture artist attempts to reproduce the exact appearance of the subject with truthfulness and an unscrupulous level of attention to detail, often repudiating idealization and imaginative over interpretation. The veristic form of portrait art, where often sculptures or paintings are described as having “warts and all“ shows all of the imperfections of the subject faithfully reproduced including: scars, warts, hairline, and wrinkles. It zeroes in on the minuscule details of the human body and head. That's why the art subjects of the so-called “veristic“ portraits of the late Republic holds such special fascination for art historians and researchers because the fine facial details tell us almost exactly what they looked like. The modern preference for portraits is to use a contemporary subject, instead of a legendary or idealistic heroic subject, and sculpt the subject somewhere between the classical and veristic styles of sculpture art to produce a sculpted masterpiece that is both realistic and slightly flattering. It takes a real master sculptor to create a portrait sculpture in marble, bronze, stone, or metal material while creating a perfect likeness of a specific person or species of animal.

Often a bust that is sculpted of only the subject's neck and head is enough to create a full-figure statue from. If the sculpture is then covered with clothing so that the outfit covers most of the body by wearing long pants, or a long dress in the case of a woman's figure, with the addition of the left and right hand this is enough to make a convincingly realistic full-figure statue without having to carve (or sculpt) the torso, arms, or legs therefore greating reducing the costs.
