    The mold is usually taken directly from the original, so that the replica reproduces even the finest details. After casting the replica, using the most appropriate method, the surface is polished, patinated, gilded or painted according to the original.

    A replica of ars mundi is a recognizable image of the original.

    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.

    Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

    Cast stone
    Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

    Cold cast bronze
    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.

    ARA wooden copy
    In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

    Ceramic casting
    As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

    Bronze casting
    In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
