These life-size bronze military statues are very majestic. Soldiers and officers are wearing military uniforms, hats, and guns and equipment around their waists. They are walking from the water. Some of them hold fists in their hands, and some of them stride forward, as if with great courage and determination.
MacArthur Leyte Landing Memorial National Park is a protected area in the Philippines commemorating General Douglas MacArthur’s historic landing at Leyte Gulf at the beginning of the campaign to retake and liberate the Philippines. This incident directly led to the largest naval battle in World War II, thus influencing Japan’s final defeat and surrender nearly three years later. The War Memorial is located in Palo City, Leyte, Eastern Visayas, and is one of the region’s major tourist attractions. President Ferdinand Marcos declared it a national park on July 12, 1977.
Compared with the cheap ammonia used by other foundries, we use silica sol technology, which could prevent various white spots from appearing on the surface of the bronze military sculpture, making the appearance of the bronze military statues very exquisite. At the same time, it could also make the bronze military statues have a longer service life.
After the welded and polished, our artists would begin to patina the surface of the bronze military sculpture. Patina is a test of the artist’s skills. If the patina is uneven, the color of the bronze military sculpture might be dark or light, making it not good-looking. Our artists are great at patina, and the bronze military sculptures they patina are natural and long-lasting.

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.
