What is the bronze sculpture Bobaraba Tanja made of?
Bronze stands for a variety of high-quality alloys based on copper, zinc, lead, and tin, with unique ratios that ensure their unique appearance. And here's the best part: these bronze statues are crafted from recycled materials, such as old faucets and air conditioning parts, making them a sustainable choice.
The creation process is just as fascinating as the end result.
The artist starts by creating a detailed wax figure, which is then encased in a unique mixture of clay and manure, after which it is dried. After heating, the wax melts away and makes way for the liquid bronze, which is carefully poured into the mold. After cooling, the mold is broken to reveal the beautiful bronze statue, which is then finished by hand down to the smallest details.
