Sculpture "Nebra Sky Disk" (Reduction)

The Nebra sky disk is deemed by UN since 2013 as Memory of the World. By this, not the age of the object is appreciated, but rather its science history significance and, by this, the powers of observation of the Bronze Age astronomers, who made the sky disk be possible for the first time. And, this, without doubt, just by accurate and patient observation and analysis of the starry sky over Nebra. Features that are the assets of any scientific activity for hundreds of generations afterwards. Such as this replica placed on a marble base, at one-third size.

Metallic disk, copper-plated and patinated. Diameter ca. 12.5 cm. Base of diabase, Format: base 6 x 6 x 6 cm (W/H/D). Format: overall ca. 12.5 x 18.5 x 6 cm (W/H/D).

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.
