Torso of Asclepius – buy bronze or marble replica

The head and upper body of this statue are preserved without the arms. The luxuriant hair forms a quiff over the forehead and the head is turned to the left and tilted upwards. The beard is worked in coarse curls and the thick moustache forms a characteristic circle around the mouth. The eyes are made of a different material and inlaid.
 
It is a Hellenistic marble sculpture from the 2nd century BC, modelled on a lost bronze statue of Asclepius by the sculptor Skopas from the second half of the 4th century BC. The torso was found in Munichia, a neighbourhood of Piraeus. It is on display in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.

Patination of the torso of Asklepios

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.

Every torso replica you buy from us is engraved in the base with a serial number, date of manufacture and our company logo. The base is also engraved with your name, lettering, the reason for manufacture, your own company logo or additional engraving as required.

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!
