Roman: Sculpture pair "Bull and Bear", version in polymer bronze

In the 16th century, the Spanish brought the bullfight to the New World. However, the Mexicans changed the rules without further ado and placed the bull in front of a chained bear in the arena. The poet Don José de la Vega used in 1688 this image for what was happening on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange. Since then, the bull and the bear belong to the stock exchange world same as Dow Jones and Wall Street.

Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
