Description Sculpture Dancing Satyr

The dancing faun is now more accurately identified by scholars as a satyr, a mischievous figure from ancient mythology and literature known for his love of wine, music and mischief. This satyr holds a metal cymbala in his hands and wears a “kroupezion” attached to his sandal, which is somewhat similar to today’s tap shoes.
 
His faunistic features can be recognised by the tiny horns above his forehead and the small goat’s tail on his backside. His head is bent forwards, absorbed in the music, and every muscle in his athletic body, from his deltoids to his stomach to his calves, seems tensed as he plays.
 
This work is a Roman marble copy of a lost group from the 2nd century BC, probably made of bronze, which is known to us from coins from the 2nd century AD from Kyzikos (Greek city on the Marmara Sea) as well as from many other copies. The dancing Sayr is apparently asking a nymph sitting opposite him to dance with him. The best- preserved copies allowed the position of the arms to be reconstructed and so the arms were added to this model.

In our online shop, you have the opportunity to buy the Dancing Satyr sculpture as a replica in its original size. The replica in bronze and also in marble is a replica cast in museum quality. You are purchasing a detailed, life-size sculpture based on the plaster cast of the original in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Description

Antique statue, cast bronze in museum quality

The sculpture is produced as a bronze casting using the traditional lost wax technique. The basis for the negative mould required for this is a plaster cast of the original in the Uffizi / Florence.
 

Cast marble & marble sculpture from the sculptor

In addition to classic bronze casting, we also offer two other moulds for the statues shown here. Marble casting from powdered genuine white marble. And the new moulding of the statue by sculptors from a single block of white marble. If you are interested in such a mould, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to receiving your e-mail or phone call.
 

Patinating the statue

Patination marks the final step in the finishing process of a bronze statue.
The patina simulates the natural oxidation process that causes the bronze to weather differently over time, depending on the environmental influences on the copper alloy. We have various patina recipes in our repertoire, including one that corresponds well to the patina of preserved antique bronze statues. We will be happy to provide you with samples of suitable patinas in advance.

Memory cast in bronze in the radiant light of antiquity

Ancient Greek bronze statues and their masterfully crafted Roman marble replicas were the sensual and visual mirror of these two advanced civilisations for over a millennium. After their rediscovery during the Renaissance, these statues once again became world-famous and symbolised the emergence of modernity.
 
In keeping with the ancient traditions of Delphi and Rome, the statue made for you and with your name as the donor will forever be a reminder of your personality and achievements.
 

Locations for the installation of ancient statues & list of parks with ancient sculptures

Antique statues are hardly available in the original. Since their rediscovery in the Renaissance, expensive replicas have been made for castles, their parks and also for the mansions of the wealthy bourgeoisie. During this period, a canon for the installation and placement of these works of art was created that developed into modern times. Here you will find an overview of particularly beautiful locations for antique statues. We also offer you an overview of some publicly accessible gardens and parks, each of which has an impressive collection of ancient sculptures. With specific details of which statues can be seen where. Go travelling, let yourself be inspired!
