|Our company has dealt with art for years. Looking through our extensive list of unique art it should show you our dedication and passion of our work. In this particular section we offer the Icarus statue, winged or wingless. If you are interested in purchasing or customizing a Wing or wingless Icarus statue you can call the office or fill out an order form below. When purchasing custom Icarus statuary you are able to control the material, color, and design.
Icarus was a Greek boy that was the father to Daedalus. Daedalus and Icarus was master craftsman and one day Daedalus created wings that could fly out of feathers and wax. Daedalus warned Icarus not to fly too close to the son, but he did. This lead to his demise. There is a moral to this story but i will leave it up to you to figure out what that is.
We offer many types of materials for your artist or architectural needs. The materials that we are able to completely customize are wood, marble, bronze, copper, aluminum, fiberglass, plaster, hydro stone, silver, cement, and even gold. Depending on the material, the process for creating an Icarus statue differs.
If you would like an aluminum wing Icarus we either can create it as a reproduction or create a completely new mold. After the mold is created, we then ask the customer what type of material to use. For example, gold, copper, plaster, etc. If you would like to have it plated this is also possible. A plated Icarus is when there are two different materials. The inner layer could be nickel and the outer layer can be gold, for example.
Wood and marble, on the other hand, are carved by hand. This gives a much more artistic look. The attention to detail can depend on what the customer likes. For example, if you would like a realistic bear we can get down to every hair if you like. Our wood carvers are from overseas in Indonesia. These expert carvers have many years of experience creating the perfect statue for you. Marble is carved by other sculptors.
Faux marble is also available to our customers. A faux marble statue is created with usually hydro stone, plaster, or cement. After the medium is selected then our artists can make it into faux marble. Our artists have done this for years.Real marble and faux marble are completely identical. Marble is not the only type of imitation that we offer.
