Warrior of Tairona

The heritage of the Jaguar God: in advanced civilizations of the Andes as well as among the Mesoamerican peoples the Jaguar cult played a major role. This god, half a man, half an animal, is the central theme throughout mystical symbolism. The warrior of Tairona especially impresses with his reaching up high helmet with its unrestrained tropical ornamentation and wealth. Original: Gold Museum, Bogotá. 800-1500 AD, gold-plated metal casting. Height with the plinth 12 cm, weight 0.3 kg.

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.
