This magnificent cast bronze statue captures the spirit and charm of Rodin's iconic original sculpture The Thinker,reproduced using the lost wax casting technique gives an incredible level of detail.
Rodin was a French sculptor, many consider him the progenitor of modern sculpture, The Thinker was part of a commission in 1880 ( the gates of hell) for the future Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris.
As Rodin himself described what makes my Thinker think?
He thinks not only with his brain but also with his knitted brow, his distended nostrils and compressed lips, but with every muscle of his arms, back, legs, clenched fist and gripping toes.
The Thinker is a fabulous signature piece sculpture, bronze has unsurpassed permanence giving years of enjoyment, perfect indoors, or outdoors blending subtly with any garden or landscape.
Lost Wax casting: Produced using the lost wax technique one of the oldest casting techniques using a wax mould, dating back over 5000 years much of the process remains unchanged since ancient times.
