Garden sculpture "Mother Duck", copper on stone

This accurate reproduction of a domestic mother duck with her ducklings is hand-made of pure copper. Since 1897, the handcraftsmanship workshops Philippe Basche are creating garden art based on a manufacturing method from the 19th century. The three bird sculptures are mounted on a hand-picked riverbed stone, so that they integrate gracefully in garden or park landscapes. The dark patina achieved using a formula of the company founder, Karl Basche, confers timeless elegance to the sculptures. The noble copper material guarantees weathering stability. Height 32 cm, Weight ca. 25 kg. Delivered with certificate.

Copper is the oldest metal known to mankind and used in crafts - at least since 8000 B.C - a whole epoch of the Neolithic period is named after it.

This fascinating metal experienced an artistic highpoint with the copperplate engraving in the 16th century. Picasso appreciated this graphical method for its line sharpness and contributed to its revival today. Copper has firmly established itself also in the field of sculpture.

Copperplate engraving

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.
