GIVE ME BRONZE, GIVE ME SUN...March 30, 2014
The Bronze Age came after The Stone Age. Bronze was initially used for weapons & armor then the artists took notice. From the Greeks, Romans, French, Shang Dynasty of China to the Cholo Dynasty of India priceless masterpieces were created & can still be seen today in major museums across the world. Bronze is an alloy (metal mix) like Sterling, it is usually 88% Copper 12% Tin & very strong. This alloy mix was first used around 4500 BC! This particular piece is also a masterpiece. It is noticeably finely cast using high standards, very well weighted, the design is unique & the color is a rich warm caramel. I'm using it for a Rosary Center & love being able to incorporate the homophone "Sun" & "Son" both being "The Light". The pics are only mockups due to the Crucifix not being finished yet. Whatever you decide to design around this gorgeous piece it shouts "ADORNMENT"! Artbeads, please carry more Bronze from this line & Bronze Crucifixes too???
