Our statue  is based on the sculpture  «Perseus with the Head of Medusa»  made by Benvenuto Cellini in the period 1545-1554. The subject matter of the work is the mythological story of  Perseus beheading Medusa, a hideous woman-faced Gorgon whose hair was turned to snakes and anyone that looked at her was turned to stone. Perseus stands naked except for a sash and winged sandals, triumphant on top of the body of Medusa with her snakey head in his raised hand. The body of Medusa spews blood from her severed neck.

Material & Manufacture process: Cast Marble

Cast Marble statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek Marble stone is mixed with a small quantity of resin that works as a glue.  The mixture is then poured into a mold of the statue design. Because the powder is so fine the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural crushed Greek Marble stone, which gives it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are finished by hand to ensure the finest quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant, doesn't have bubbles, will not crack, and can be washed with most cleaning agents.

Please note: Our statues are not carved. 100% Natural marble statues are hand carved and command a very hefty price. Our product offerings are intended to be affordable to the majority public.
