It illustrates the Biblical creation narrative from the Book of Genesis in which God gives life to Adam, the first man.

Quantity

Statue reproduction in bronzed resin glazed by hand and inspired by the techniques used by ancient peoples. Lost wax casting is the process for making bronze statues used since ancient times and to this day the most used by sculptors to obtain statues with complex shapes.

The resin and bronze are added to a hardening liquid and manually poured into negative molds, in which they solidify upon cooling. Once the resin has hardened, the molds are opened and the rough statues are extracted. This phase is followed by another that includes cleaning the sculptures from any residues from processing, repairing and smoothing them by hand.
