The prices depend on materials used,
quantity of material and the amount of finish work done by the sculptor. Pieces
are available in marble, open and limited edition or original, cold cast bronze and hot
poured bronze. The limited edition and original pieces are hand carved
individually by the sculptor and made for the person commissioning the work.
Each one is a unique piece of art work. The detail and surface texture are
museum quality. The prices of these pieces are appropriately higher than the
open edition pieces. The open edition pieces are modestly or low
priced priced for those looking for a decoration piece instead of an original
work of art. The open edition pieces are solid castings made in bonded marble
from a mold of Dr. Lanzalotti's but hand finished just as the original hand carved busts.
The detail is significant and the image is very faithful
to the Houdon originals making this a very good value for the price.
In addition, there are discounts available
for those buying in quantity in all categories. I also offer discounts to
institutions such as schools and museums. Call for wholesale prices.
When you call or e-mail expressing an
interest please describe what you are looking for: an original museum quality
sculpture or a low cost figurine.
