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. If you would prefer for your sculpted portrait to be wearing clothes then putting extra work into the covered portions is somehwhat unnecessary anyways so you can save money instead and skip it. In addition to offering some of the finest commissioned portrait sculptures we also provide other valuable art services including: custom life-size statues, monumental commissioned sculpture artworks, custom mold making, reproduction art casting services, fine art and statue repair and art restoration, metal statues, marble carvings, bronze art, faux finish painting, custom carved wood art, custom interior refinishing, memorial monument creation, custom trophies, and professional art consulting services.

Bronze Statue Portrait Artist Sculptor Sculptor: Valentin
Subject: Dr. Oswald P. Bronson Sr., Bethune-Cookman College President.
Motto: "Enter to learn; depart to serve."
Size: 24" x 17" x 12"
Location: Daytona Beach, Florida
Material: Bronze casting

We are a top provider of custom bronze sculptures created by our renowned artists and sculptors, Dave Damon and Valentin. The photographs on this page show the before and after images of a bronze casting made by the sculptor Valentine who was commsioned to sculpt a custom bronze bust of the President of the well known College Bethune-Cookman. Note that even the subject's glasses were includesd in the final bronze sculpture.

Read what the Senior Class President, Tikica Scott, had to say about the bronze sculpture: "The bust turned out very nice. The Senior Class as well as the President and the others who saw it were very pleased with the results. Thank you for the great work MarbleClassics."

In addition, the bronze sculpture brought media attention in the form of a report on CNN global news covering the honoration of the sculpture as it was given to the Bethune-Cookman College President, Dr. Oswald P. Bronson. That kind of free media attention alone can be worth more than the cost to make the custom bronze sculpture itself in the first place.

Famous Sculpture Artist Valentin Valentin graduated with a Master of Art degree from UCLA, California and has this to say about his art: "My art is based on human forms, which express the dynamics of the soul and powerful energy of the creative mind. My sculptures resonate love and compassion for humanity, the power of Nature and the energy of Spiritual presence."

I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria. Since childhood, I've always been inspired by the visual grandeur of ancient Greek civilization and art from the Italian Renaissance. Fascinated with the intrinsic beauty of the human form, I studied sculpture and anatomy for more than 15 years, eventually earning a Bachelor, then a Master degree in Art.

A classical education has provided me with the foundation to begin developing my own artistic language and style. I began to express the endless beauty and harmony of the world through abstract art. However, I don't consider my work as experimental or "good try" abstract art. Instead, my unique style incorporates and symbolizes grace, beauty, spontaneity, and a powerful inner logic inherent to this wonderful, awe-inspiring universe that we inhabit.

We all know that the artistic representation of a simple form or human body can be interpreted in a hundred different ways. That is the beauty of abstract art - the diversity of the art and the diversity of the interpretation is as limitless as the human imagination. It's a two-way creative process.

Throughout the 1980's and 1990's, my bronzes have been showcased in many of the largest and most prestigious art forums in Europe including Bazel Art, in Switzerland, and the Frankfurt Art Fair, in Germany. My art has been exhibited in every western European country, and in many others countries such as Greece, Japan, Mexico and the United States.

Private collectors of Valentin's art: Mr.Peter Stoyanov - President of Bulgaria, Mrs.Tipper Gore - wife of Vice President Al Gore, Mr. Arsenio Hall - Hollywood celebrity and actor, Mrs./Mr.Fisher art collectors - Germany, Mr. J. Clark writer and journalist for "Time Magazine" - Toronto, Canada, Mr. Robert Nicely - third generation art collector, Germany, Prof. J. Dezmolier - France, etc.

I also have been working as a sculptor in the motion picture industry for some of the most creative modern special effects houses in Hollywood, including Digital Domain and Dream Quest. I have been credited for my work in the blockbuster movies "Titanic", "Arrival", "Bicentennial Man", "Dante's Peak", and "The Fifth Element". See Valentin's full list of credits

Alexander the Great Sculpture Bust Art Based on Louvre
Alexander the Great Sculpture Bust Art Based on Louvre
Item:
Medium: Clay Sculpture
Size: Call for Quote
Weight: N/A

Once our client reviewed and approved the images of Alexander the Great [from a vast selection of photographs of every Alexander bust and full figure sculpture ever done] sourced from the internet and various books, then the sculptor went to work using just a limited number of images - so as not to get confused as to which sculpture to recreate. This would seem obvious enough, but often times too many pictures is worse than too few. So sticking with one or two images, and maybe a third at most, to base the final artwork on, helps everything turn out as expected.

Our sculptor began resculpting the masterpiece by applying flat sections of clay for the chest muscles and trapezius muscles and filled in the neck to get the proportions right for the upper body to match the head - as only a true master sculptor can do through minor anatomical and muscular exaggerations. Usually a chicken wire oval ball is made to attach directly to the armature for form of the head. The basic shape of the face and head is therein formed. Chinese terra cotta warrior style hollow clay sculpting would require the head to be made by rolling clay into long rolls, or strips, and then built them up layer by layer by blending and smoothing each clay roll into the next without leaving any air pockets. The simularity in the two sculpting styles is because the Chinese terra cotta warriors were fired in a kiln after they were sculpted and they had to be 100% clay to keep the sculpture cracking or even exploding during the clay firing process. As you can imagine hollow sculpting is a very tedious process and requires that the sculptor almost be a structural engineer, as much as an artist, to keep their artwork from accidentally falling over, or collapsing, when sculpting such a large statue.

That's why most of your modern sculpting is done with a throw away concept in a inexpensive and easy to work temporary material, that only needs to last long enough for a mold to be completed. Otherwise, most permanent original sculptures are better when carved in marble, or other stones, or using different types of imported hard woods. The advantages of wood or marble carvings is that they immediately avoid the mold making labor costs and associated material costs are eliminated.

Most of the artists in the world don't have access to much in the way of technology so they use what's at hand: wood and stone. The obvious disadvantage is that it may take longer for an artist to carve out of hard wood, marble, granite, or stone, and the cost to ship the heavy artwork from the artist, often located overseas, to the client can add up. Whereas a typical professional sculptor in North America, or Europe, these days uses either inexpensive clay, foam, or plaster to make a quick original artwork out of an easy to work material which is then converted to a mold of the opposite shape using modern chemistry which is thereafter used to cast quick reproductions for our clients.

The complexity and size of an artwork must be assessed before sculpting begins to determine the best medium for the artist to work in. Whether its going to be sculpted out of clay, worked in plaster, or even carved out of foam is based on the intricacies of the project. Plaster may not be an ideal sculpting medium, even if the final casting will be in plaster, unless it is a repair to a damaged plaster sculpture. Often a softer material is required to shape a sculpture when you don't want to unnecessarily battle with a hard sculpting surface. That is what makes clay the preferred sculpting medium for artworks in the small to medium size range. However, the moisture level of clay must be monitored very closely to avoid over drying, or the opposite: swelling of the clay medium making it disintegrate and become too soft to hold any shape. Sometimes an artist will allow the clay to dry in stages from the ground up so that the lower, weight bearing, portions of the sculpture have time to harden and firm up. Building medium to large size clay statues without an internal armature is an art, perhaps perfected by the hollow Chinese terra cotta warrior sculptors. Only an expert sculptor should attempt such an ancient art technique without ending in disaster, when either the sculpture tips over like fallen tree by being too heavy on one side, or too soft and wet (or a combination of both).

The base for the Alexander the Great Bust is a regal column with a faux marble finish and gold leafing on the lower ring of the column and the gold on the capital leafing. See the unpainted casting next to the faux marble painted reproduction of Alexander. Notice the comparison between the original Alexander the Great sculpture and the resculpted Alexander the Great bust by our art department head sculptor Karoy. See for yourself the remarkable similarity in the silhouette profile of Alexander even before the clay sculpture's hair was completed.

Our company specializes in creating any sculpture in any material. These include sculptures, furniture, figurines, fountains, and much more. While looking through our extensive list of products in every style, you can take note, we are also able to create custom art sculpting. In this particular section we will give details and frequently asked questions about an angel sculpted in plaster. If you are interested in purchasing or customizing an angel with wings you can call the office, fill out an order form, or put it in the shopping cart. When creating a custom angel with wings in plaster you can control the material, design, color, and size.

Before we plaster an angel with wings we create a mold first. After the mold is made the plaster is then added. After the final mold is made we give great detail. When creating a custom work of plaster angels we need to completely make a new mold for it. This is the difference between a custom angel with wings and an angel with wings we already offer.

Besides plaster, we also offer different types of materials. Different materials use different processes when creating the artwork, such as angels with wings. A medium is the material used when creating the angel with wings. Some materials that we offer are marble, wood, plaster, fiberglass, copper, gold, silver, hydro stone, and nickel. When creating a mold we can make it into plaster, fiberglass, copper, gold, silver, hydro stone or nickel. If you are interested in a medium we can also make it plated. When we plate an angel with feathers we can make it a less expensive material within and a more expensive material showing. With marble and wood we carve it from hand. Looking through our extensive list you should notice the intricacy that our artists have. This gives it a more unique look.

An angel with feather wings in plaster it can be designed in any way. For example, you can have a wing plaster angel embracing a woman sobbing over a death of a loved one. Another example is a plaster wing angel standing plainly but with great detail in muscle and hair. These are only some examples of designs for the winged plaster angel.

If you would like to color a plastered angel we can do so. We also offer faux marble sculpting. Faux marble sculpting is a fancy name for fake marble sculpture. When creating a faux marble we have artists that have been doing this for many years that paint and gloss the sculpture. Faux marble sculpture can be cement, plaster, or hydro stone.

Being able to customize a plaster angel winged statue is great because you are also able to control the size. Being an architect, Feng Shui designer or just purchasing this for personal use can give great benefit to the beholder. A plastered winged angel is great for any home or business modeling or remodeling.

There are many people who wish to have a very special person immortalized for their inspiring service to their church and community. We were commissioned to make a bronze bust of a well love and respected African American, Bishop B.D. Kinsey for a Church in Jacksonville, Florida. This church called the Cathedral of Faith Church of God in Christ had a leader and mentor with Bishop B.D. Kinsey and wanted to immortalize this man with a life size 30" bronze sculpture.

Our sculptor, Karoy had only one photograph of Bishop B.D. Kinsey provided by the church which they wanted the sculpture made of him as a younger man dressed in his traditional robe. Our sculptor made a three dimensional proportionate piece of art capturing the likeness and essence of Bishop Kinsey.

This was very important to the church as Bishop B.D. Kinsey was a Powerful Visionary and spiritual leader in Jacksonville and the surrounding area. It is said he was a winning strategy for a troubled world and his television and radio broadcast was on the air for over fifteen years inspiring the faith of many in his congregation.

 
 
 
Chinese Terra Cotta Style Sculpted Clay Hercules Statue
Chinese Terra Cotta Style Sculpted Clay Hercules Statue
Item:
Medium: Clay Sculpture

This Hercules statue, actually two statues oriented upside down to each other, was made using a \"\"technique similar to the terra cotta warrior sculptures of China. The reason for this is simple: Both our sculpted clay Hercules statue and the terra cotta warriors were built to be fired in a kiln. This makes for a very challenging task because the legs, torso, arms, and head of each individual male figure of the Hercules and Diomedes statue must be built from the bottom up, as a continuous and interconnected hollow structure. The knee and shoulder of the clay Hercules sculpture are left open, as seen in the progress photos, so that the moist air inside the statue can escape allowing it to quickly harden.

\"\"Once the general shape of the statue of Hercules and Diomedes was formed in clay, then the artist could sculpt the musculature and bring out the individual muscle definition within his arms and back. All sides of the combined sculpture of Hercules and Diomedes, in an inverted wrestling position, had to be built in a careful and balanced manner because if too much clay was added to one side, and not the other, it could tip ove\"\"r. So both the front and back sides (and the left and right sides) had to be constructed rather symmetrically from the bottom up. If a clay sculpture tips over it can set a sculptor back days, if not weeks, worth of sculpting. Sometimes this is for the better, since the second time a sculptor recreates an artwork it many times will turn out better than if the artwork had never been destroyed in the first place. "Misfortune and good luck are often two sides of the same coin." - credited to an unknown author.

\"\"If this statue wasn\'t sculpted hollow on the inside it may have added up to over half a ton of clay. When completed the actual hollow clay Hercules sculpture weighed between 400-500 lbs. That\'s why before a sculpture like this is ever begun it must have a base, or platform, for it to be sculpted on that ideally should be made mobile, preferably with wheels. Also, the final casting work should be done near to where the artwork was made so that no transportation is required. Otherwise you risk damaging a clay sculpture [with no armature] just from the road vibration encountered during driving.

At the base of the statue, between the feet of Hercule\"\"s is a finely detailed lion face [fitted with a water fountain spout in the final casting] with a flowing mane placed over a tree stump on which Hercules sits on in the final artwork. Part of the technique of making a successful sculpture is to incorporate scenic elements, in this case a tree stump, below your statue so that it has something to support the awkwardly positioned wrestling figures and provide counter balance to the weight of any sculpted details. Our art department is skilled at making almost any sculpture imaginable!

All of the statue details must be decided upon before any art sculpting begins. The use of a couple photographs only is usually enough for our sculpting team to have enough information to make a marble masterpiece. When we get commissioned to make a marble carving, in this case an angel statue holding two babies, our clients may want to make comments and suggestions after receiving photo updates via email to ensure that the sculpting goes along according to their preferences. Since carving a marble statue is so permanent it is best to refine the artwork concept in clay first, whether oil based (plasticine) or water based clay. In the process of both making a clay sculpture and carving a marble block right next to it, two sculptures have actually been made, one is used temporary to make the other more permanent version. This is a theme repeated many times when it comes to making a masterpiece, it is the way of a master sculptor. There is an additional charge for the clay sculpting service, but its worth it if there are particular details that you want to refine after the sculpting has begun.

"I say that the art of sculpture is eight times as great as any other art based on drawing, because a statue has eight views and they must all be equally well made." Benvenuto Cellini (1500-1571), Italian Baroque goldsmith and sculptor, in a letter to Benedotto Varchi, January 28, 1547.

Sculpting a maquette is the equivalent of a rough draft for a book, or a pencil sketch for a painting. The more preparation that goes into an artwork, and for that matter this is true for anything in life,the more perfected it becomes. The results even become more impressive for the sculptor to make a small figurine sized sculpture first, then a two to three foot tall sculpture version, then move up to a life-size statue five feet to six feet tall. Every time a sculptor is sculpting the same statue again from scratch they learn more about the proportions, fine details, and things that can be improved on since the last time. Depending on the size and final material the maquette could be sculpting out of wax, clay, plaster, and even foam depending on the project requirements.

Custom Life-Size Venus De Milo Statue Art Project

When a classical statue is commissioned, especially (as in this case) a female Venus De Milo figure with flowing clothing, instead of sculpting every fold of the fabric's texture, as would be the case if the only material used to make the statue was clay, the most dramatic drapery effects can be achieved by dipping specially cut sections of canvas into freshly mixed batches of plaster and then placing the canvas onto the Venus De Milo statue where the ancient Greek toga clothing should be with every fold included. Incredible and impressive cloth draping effects can be engineered in this way fold by fold.

First our sculptor had to build an armature out of two by four wood planks and steel rods at the core surrounded by chicken wire attached to the wood with staples. The trick to building a proper armature is to get the basic angles and proportions of the statue absolutely correct. Then the outer surface is built with the aid of cutout sections of fiberglass matte dipped into small batches of carefully mixed plaster - just like a paper machete project in school, only with plaster instead of flour and fiberglass instead of newspaper. The trick at this stage is to
leave room for the towel, or dress, wrapped around the waist of the Venus De Milo - that must be added later on. One major fold and crease must be created one section at a time by dipping, folding, and nailing the canvas into place and allowing it to dry until the entire clothing of Venus De Milo is finished. In this manner, any dress imaginable can be sculpted and painted with any finish faux texture and color imaginable.

This concept can be applied to window drapes, or door drape box coverings, and can be sculpted to look like the real full shape of fabric drapery while actually being only a sculpture. Many times real fabric drapes get old, fade, become soiled, and are too flat - lacking the fullness that can be created with sculpted drapes by our artists. If you would like our art department to make custom sculpted draperies of your home, or custom drapery boxes for your windows, we will need the measurements for each drapery window section you want, and we will either complete the drapery sculpting on-site (to ensure everything fits as it should) or we can sculpt the draperies in our art workshop and carefully pack and ship them to your location ready for installation by your people, or you may choose to have our staff install them for you. Since we also provide a wide array of faux finishes you can pick a faux texture to paint your drapes with and choose to have them painted before they are shipped, or we can paint your drapery sculptures after they have been installed on-site, just in case there needs to be any touch-ups later on.

Many times in the art creation process it is difficult to put the name of just one artist to an artwork since a sculpture is rarely worked on by just one sculptor, unless it is a relatively small sculpture, and even then two or three sculptors may be utilized to finish it completely. Multiple sculptors commonly work together on an art piece in a skill based hierarchy with the master sculptor doing much of the bulk shaping and refining work until it gets to a point where the apprentices can provide help and reduce the work load on the master sculptor by helping sand, fill, and prepare the final texturing to an artwork. Often a single sculptor tends to lose energy, and momentum, on an art project after spending weeks, or even months, perfecting a single sculpture. Instead of forcing the already spent artist to continue working, a nearly equally skilled sculptor, or an apprentice, can step in to put the finishing details together with a fresh perspective, and insure the artwork is symmetrical and finalized. Often it takes an outside perspective of at least two sculptors to see the things that an isolated artist "in the trenches" might otherwise unintentionally overlook. We view the creation of art as a collective process, as it has always been since the time of Leonardo De Vinci, with a better end product resulting by having more skilled people involved than just one artist. When several sculptors put their heart, soul, blood, and sweat into a sculpture it is not unlike a piece taken from the body and life force of a master sculptor... that's why they call it a masterpiece!

Erotic Vitruvian, Dragon, and Tribal Tattoo Sculpture Art

Tribal tattoos have gained a new level of popularity over the years. Several of our erotic sculptures are of female and male wall statues painted with intense artistic tribal tattoo designs. The first female sculpture stands erect as she touches her upper thighs lightly with her hands at her side and her back is painted with tribal tattoo designs in a diamond shape. This female wall relief sculpture is also painted with a tattoo of the Vitruvian Man, centering on her upper back. The Vitruvian Man, based on a well-known drawing by the prestigious artist Leonardo da Vinci, depicts the male form in two simultaneous positions: one with his arms and legs stretched outwards closely forming an "X" shape and the other in a standing position with legs pointed straight down and arms raised vertically forming a "T". Both body positions overlap encircled and enclosed in both a circle and a square at the same time. Like most erotic art, the Vitruvian man is entirely nude, although it does not allude or suggest the idea of human sexuality, it focuses more on the human geometric proportions of the unclothed man in his natural state. Surrounding the area around the Vitruvian man are tribal art tattoos shaped like a "V" adding a frame in the form of a perimeter to the back tattoo. The bottom pointed end of the tattoo seemingly points in the direction of the female's butt. The right cheek is also painted (rather nicely I might add) with a tribal element as well as the right wrist, where the tattoo worn like a bracelet, and an additional tribal tattoo wrapped around her left bicep - all with enough tribal tattoo style interplays to make it work as a whole coordinated tattooed artwork.

Similar in composition to the very first female relief sculpture mentioned above, the second female tribal art sculpture figure is painted with tattoos on her back that depict two dragons seemingly in perfect opposition, yet of equal size. Dragons are a favorite for tattoos and art because they are such legendary creatures, known for their breathtaking flying power, scaly reptilian hide, massive wing size, and ferocious fire breathing. The relief art sculpture also has complimentary tattoos on her right upper arm, upper right hip, and right butt cheek.

A male relief sculpture goes with this tattooed art sculpture collection. Unlike the other tattooed sculpture artworks, this one is painted with tribal art tattoos on the back portraying an incredibly long dragon. Dragons of this length are a different adaptation of dragon lineage that were known to be more from China and are not the same dragons that are found in European folklore and legends. The Asian style dragons are known as Chinese dragons, or Imperial dragons. Chinese dragons do not have any wings but are able to soar to the skies with a slithering up and down motion, not unlike the movement of a modern roller coaster. Imperial dragons can represent a particular Chinese emperor and were known occasionally to take the human form. The dragon tattoo on the back muscles of the wall sculpture extends across the entire posterior torso dynamically as the man is chained, or tied up, or perhaps he just happens to be holding metal chains with his arms appearing to be bound behind his back for theatrical effect.

We also managed to create another beautiful tattooed wall sculpture; a nude woman figurine, a torso sculpture from her shoulders to her knees, she holds a small candle in her left hand as she uses her other hand over the top to feel the warmth at a distance. The entire frontal region of her body is covered with a Japanese style chest to stomach tattoo art that begins at the top of her breasts and goes all the way down her thighs. This Japanese tattoo wall relief artwork is an illustration of garden flowers engulfed and surrounding by Japanese style ocean waves breaking across her body as if she is wearing a finely embroidered oceanic dress.

Another tattooed sculpture stands apart (different from the rest): A female angel-like figurine with her wings spread. This statue epitomizes the soft and gentle demeanor expected from an angel. Her grey-black wings outstretched are similar in composition to being nailed to the crucifixion cross, like Jesus Christ. She is decorated with cool tattoos, like the other wall sculptures in this series, comprised of tribal decor elements in asymmetrical places on her arms, and symmetrically down each thigh, as well as covering her panty line with a tribal tattoo to replace the need for women's underwear.

The final feminine figurine shows a female sitting down with her back arched forward as she rests her head on one knee, folding her arms around it for support. This crouched woman is also painted with large tribal art tattoos scattered across all the major body areas. Looking closely at her left arm, she had a snake armlet that wraps around it to add mystery.

All of our wall sculpture reproductions you can see in the photographs above are cast in polyresin, painted, and finished by hand. If you would like our team of artists to make a new tattoo sculpture custom designed with a tattoo etching of your choice - just let us know. Our staff of sculptors is ready to help you get the artwork that you've always wanted, but never found the right artist for the job, until now!
