Statue of Thalia – original template for replica bronze or marble figure

Original Roman marble statue of the muse Thalia, dating from the 2nd century B.C. The statue was recovered from the Villa Cassius near Tivoli in 1774. Thalia means “the blooming one”. Thalia is the daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne (memory) and is the muse of the light genre of comedy, poetry and song.
The statue is located in the Vatican Museums (Museo Pio Clementino), in the so-called Hall of the Muses, which was opened to visitors in 1784. The Hall of the Muses was designed to exhibit a series of sculptures found in the Villa di Cassio near Tivoli: numerous statues of the Muses, an Apollo Musagete, an Athena, herms and busts of famous Greek personalities dating back to the Hadrianic period. The Muses on display are Thalia (comedy), Clio (history) and Urania (astronomy).

Antique statue of Thalia, 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 made in Rome in 1896.

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 developed, which continued 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!
