This bronze military statue of dog and soldier is a scene of a Vietnam trainer pouring water from a water bottle into his helmet for his German Shepherd. From this bronze statue, we can tell that the soldier was very fond of his German Shepherd. This shepherd was also his best companion. He was willing to share his water with his loyal companion. This is a very warm picture of a soldier with his dog during the war.
Dogs have always been a close companion to humans. Especially during the war, for centuries. Military dogs have played an important role on the battlefield. These trained military men, who engage in a variety of dangerous roles, could die at any time. It also saved the lives of many soldiers. They are veterans, but not allowed to return home. Their contribution to America’s role in the Vietnam War was priceless, but their appearance made them victims. Because they have four legs.
In the decade of the Vietnam War, only 204 dogs left the country. Some stayed in the Pacific and some returned to the United States. No one has returned to civilian life. In the United States, the army hastily retreated from Vietnam with all the other surviving dogs. Consider the remaining equipment that had to be brought back and they were left behind. But the military is not trained to handle these dogs. John Burnham designed this bronze military statue by learning the stories behind the thousands of military dogs that died or were abandoned in the Vietnam War.

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.
