Description of the original statue

The so-called “Rondanini Alexander” shows the Macedonian king and conqueror standing naked, with his armour and armour on his back. He is kneeling on a rock and holding a jug in his left hand. It is an ancient marble copy of unknown origin of the Greek bronze original handed down through Pliny the Elder. The antique marble copy is in the Munich Glyptothek. The bronze original was part of a group of sculptures depicting King Philip of Macedon on his chariot drawn by four horses. His son Alexander, who is mounting the chariot, holds the reins in both hands. The reins were removed in later copies and replaced by the armour. The bronze original was created by the Greek sculptor Euphranor after the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 B.C. Buy the antique statue of Rondanini Alexander as a life-size bronze or marble replica. We guarantee that all sculptures in our online shop are produced in museum quality and true to detail. Personalisation is possible via the base of the Replica statue.

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 Munich Glyptothek. The finished bronze sculpture is of museum quality and corresponds to the original.

 

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.

 

Individualisation of the statue

The life-size bronze or marble replica is engraved with a serial number in the base,
date of manufacture and our company logo. The base is also engraved with your name, a lettering, the occasion of the production, your own company logo or additional personalisation as required. We will be happy to discuss any special requests for personalising the sculpture at the time of purchase.

 

Your very personal legacy

Our museum-quality bronze or marble replica is not only an artistic reproduction, it also creates timeless memories that will preserve your legacy for generations to come. By engraving your name, the date and the occasion on the base, this statue becomes an everlasting symbol of your most personal life achievement, your significance in this world and your work there.

 

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. The statue made for you and with your name as the donor will forever be a reminder of your personality and achievements in the ancient traditions of Delphi and Rome.

 

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 developed, which continued into modern times. Here you will find an overview of particularly beautiful locations for antique statues. And in our online shop we offer you an overview of some publicly accessible gardens and parks, each of which has an impressive collection of antique sculptures. With specific details of which statues can be seen where. Go travelling, let yourself be inspired!
