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.

Originally an imperious title, later, the name of the inhabitants of the Inca Empire in the highlands of Peru.

From the very outset towards the late 11th century, the Inca Empire was located only in the city of Cuzco, northwest of Lake Titicaca. It had expanded continuously and reached an area that extended from the present northern border of Ecuador to the Rio Maule in Chile until the arrival of the Spaniards in 1532.

The Inca constructed great buildings, where practicality and usability were in the foreground. The ornaments were only on gates and niches. In contrast, goldsmith's and ceramic art brought forth an extensive heritage that can be admired today in museums all over the world.
