Hans Daucher: Replica "Cherub of the Fugger Chapel" (around 1530), cast stone

Jakob Fugger founded in 1509 also the Fugger Chapel, designed by Albrecht Dürer within St.-Anna-Church in Augsburg: It is the first building north of the Alps, penetrated by the spirit of Humanism. The burial place of brothers Fugger, built by 1512, magnificently decorated during the following years and consecrated in 1518 was the brilliant prelude of Renaissance in Germany and one of its highlights. Besides Albrecht Dürer, some of the most significant German Renaissance artists worked on it. Unique and charming are the cherubs adorning the balustrades of the Fugger Chapel, "watching" the Fugger's tomb.

For the 500th jubilee of the Fugger Chapel in St. Anna, we, at ars mundi, in cooperation with House Fugger, offer exclusively and for the first time the famous cherubs as authentic, slightly reduced museum replicas! Each exemplar is carefully hand-cast in polymer cast stone and patinated in antique finish.

Cherub of the Fugger Chapel II, around 1530; Format 28 x 27 x 16 cm (W/H/D), weight 11 kg.

(Rebirth). Designation of art from about 1350 until the 16th century.

A state of mind that developed in Florence in the late 14th century that was retrospectively classified as rebirth of the classical ideals of Greek and Roman antiquity. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Renaissance spread first over Italy and then all over Western Europe and determined the entire artistic creation. Such brilliant artists as Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dürer, Holbein, Cranach and Fouquet created their immortal works by following the humanistic premises and putting a human being in the center of all thinking.

Renaissance experienced its heyday in literature through dramatic works and poems of William Shakespeare.

At the end of the 16th century, Renaissance had to make way to the luxury of baroque before its ideas had their rebirth in the classicism of the 18th century.

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.

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.

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.
