The mermaid has a graceful figure, holding up a large conch with both hands, wearing a shell on her chest, and behind her is entangled seaweed, with a cute turtle lying on the seaweed. The mermaid’s flowing curly hair, the fish scales on the tail, and the muscle lines on the lower belly are all very detailed and vivid, making the entire bronze mermaid sculpture lifelike.
The appearance of the mermaid comes from Andersen’s fairy tale The Daughter of the Sea. It mainly tells the story of a mermaid princess who gave up her free life under the sea and her 300-year longevity in pursuit of her beloved man and used her beautiful voice to trade with a witch for human legs, so that she could walk on land like normal humans. This bronze mermaid sculpture is cast based on this story.
This bronze mermaid sculpture is very romantic, so it is very suitable to be placed in your garden or villa to help you create a fairy tale home. If you have a fountain in your garden, the mermaid sculpture could be placed next to the fountain to make the fountain look more gorgeous. At the same time, the bronze mermaid statue is also very suitable to be placed around the sea or in scenic spots for people to enjoy.
The size, color, and style of the bronze mermaid sculpture could be changed according to your needs. You could customize the size of the mermaid according to where you wanted to place it so that it could play a better decorative role. You could also add some designs to the mermaid, such as a pearl necklace, dolphins, and large seashells. Or if you wanted to replace the mermaid face with your family member’s face, that’s also available.

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.
