    Loriot - who does not know him? Under Loriots hands almost everything is turned into gold: He is responsible for 2 Golden cameras, 2 gold records, the Golden Screen, the Golden Gramophone and the Honorary Golden Lion. Not to mention the Ernst-Lubitsch- and Adolph Grimme Prize, the Telestar or special Bambi ... for his outstanding service he was awarded Federal Cross of Merit. Loriot - who does not know: The Men Muller-Ludenscheid and Dr. Klöbner who - unwittingly fall into the same hotel bath - so delightful argue about whether the duck now allowed to water or not ... In his books, has become the creator of the nose males, Vicco von Bulow, aka Loriot, dealt extensively with the passage of time. Just think about "Loriot's diary - current affairs by a master hand" or "Loriot Heile Welt - New collected texts and drawings to burning questions of our time".

    Vicco von Bulow alias Loriot was without a doubt the "grand master" of German humour. His sketches are frequently knows every word by heart (the English "by heart" it hits better ...), and on which field he has always moved - as a cartoonist, as a humourist, as an actor and director - he's always special, memorable done.

    If one asks what the reason of this success, so it is nearing on the quote of Vicco by Bulow: "comic, as I understand it, has to do with self-irony, otherwise something is missing. You must involve yourself. "That's in all his works noticeably, and because this is so, his wit is never belittling, hurtful never - at the end Loriot went even very affectionate with the figures of his aptly parodies and accurately observed unmasking of petty-bourgeois narrow-mindedness to. humour, so we could formulate is a sharp dagger for fierce clashes, but a fine scalpel, which ultimately works to the healing of the world with each cut with Loriot. The "grand master" of German humour died in August 2011

    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.

    Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

    Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

    Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

    An alloy of copper with other metals (especially with tin) used since ancient times.

    Bronze casting:

    When casting bronze, artist usually applies the lost-wax technique which is dating back more than 5000 years. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.

    Sculpture "The Book Reader" by Ernst Barlachs is shown here as an example:

    Ernst Barlach: Sculpture 'The book reader'

    Ernst Barlach 'The Book Reader' - Lost Wax Casting Technique Part 1

    First, the artist forms a model of his sculpture. It is embedded in a liquid silicone rubber composition. Once the material has solidified, the model is cut out. The liquid wax is poured in the negative mould. After cooling down, the wax casting is removed from the mould, provided with sprues and dipped into ceramic mass. The ceramic mass is hardened in a kiln, and the wax flows out (lost mould).

    Ernst Barlach 'The Book Reader' - Lost Wax Casting Technique Part 2Now we finally have the negative form, into which the 1400 ° C hot molten bronze is poured. After the bronze had cooled down, the ceramic shell is broken off and the sculpture comes to light.

    Ernst Barlach 'The Book Reader' - Lost Wax Casting Technique Part 3Now the sprues are removed, the surfaces are polished, patinated and numbered by the artist himself or, to his specifications, by a specialist. Thus, each casting becomes an original work

    For lower-grade bronze castings, the sand casting method is often used which, however, does not achieve the results of more complex lost wax technique in terms of surface characteristics and quality.
