This bronze lion statue is very imposing. The lion stands on the ground on all fours, and the muscles in its legs appear strong and powerful. Its mouth is open, exposing its teeth and tongue, its eyes are staring straight ahead, its wings are open, and its tail is slightly lowered.
Trevi has many different types of animal clay models to meet your diverse needs. The casting of each bronze sculpture requires a 1:1 clay model. If there is no ready-made clay model, it would cost additional money to make it. We have a large range of ready-made clay models so you don’t have to spend extra money.
In order to better restore every detail of the bronze lion sculpture, our artists especially use silicone moulds for casting. This makes the details of the bronze lion, such as the eyes, feathers on the wings, muscle lines, toe joints, and hair on the neck, very fine and vivid.
Trevi foundry was established in 1983 and has a history of more than 40 years. Over the past 40 years, our bronze sculptures have been exported to all over the world. Therefore, we are very keen on market trends, including trade policies and transportation of different countries. So our team could provide you with very professional purchasing advice.
In addition to bronze lion sculptures, we also have bronze mermaid, bronze horse, bronze bull, bronze dog, bronze deer sculptures, etc. for you to choose from. These animal sculptures are very suitable for decoration in your garden, courtyard, and villa.
If you have any questions, you could contact us at any time, we look forward to cooperating with you!
Material: The material of the statue is then decided by the client. The sculptor may also use a small clay model to better portray his conception of the design. The clay model can be modified to fine tune the client’s wishes.
Mini-Sculpture: Finally, the bronze sculpture artist may finalize the miniature model of the final design in order to give the client a preview into how the final product will look. This model is made using the material decided, and it can be used by the client for marketing purposes so that he can raise funds for the sculpture.
Creating the Backbone: The backbone of the bronze statue, also called the armature consists of a steel frame with foam added to it in order to resemble the rough outline of the final product. This is then sealed with a latex coat to secure it.
The Sculpting: The main work starts only now. Many pounds of hot clay are used and applied by hand to “block in” the design for the first time. The bronze sculpture artist then invests a lot of time adding more clay, removing some clay and molding the clay until the final product finally resembles the required design. Tiny details are added on to give more preciseness to the bronze statue and make it more real.
Remove dust with a damp cloth.
Do not use metal objects or wire brushes to clean the sculpture.
Do not apply abrasives or cleansers that will possibly scratch the finish.
ZUD – Non- Abrasive Cleaner. Use to remove stubborn stains. Zud cleans all metal surfaces including bronze. Zud can be used in powder or liquid form.
Lemon Oil – Apply a small amount of oil with a paintbrush or soft cloth. Cover the entire figure with oil. Wipe the surface gently with a soft cloth to take off the excess oil.
Paste Wax- A very thin, even coat of wax should be applied with a soft cloth. Allow the wax to sit and dry before polishing. Wax should be applied after bronze has been cleaned and dried. Do not apply if using lemon oil.
Do Nothing: Many bronze owners prefer to sit back and enjoy the natural reaction and aging process of their sculpture.

Ancient Sculpture Gallery is proud to present you with lost wax bronze reproductions of statues and busts from the Egyptian, Greek, Hellenistic, Roman, Asian Oriental, and Western civilizations. “Lost Wax” bronze (or hot-cast bronze) is actually 100% pure Bronze – essentially copper and tin. The making of a “lost wax” bronze is a complex and time consuming process, and specific technical expertise is needed to accomplish the task of making a bronze. The most known and used process for making “lost wax” involves pouring of molten bronze. This is the same method used by the ancient civilizations to create bronze sculptures. Our lost wax bronze sculptures are produced in this same technique.
