History of the bronzes

Is it obvious and predictable to associate the first use of Bronze during the Bronze Age, when better than the age that takes its name?
Bronze is initially used for functional purposes, then the production of hunting weapons or for any work tool, then it moves towards a decorative purpose: the creation of Bronze Statues .
One of the reasons why this Production in Bronze begins is the ease with which the raw material is found: bronze.
Coming not only from excavations, but also from the fusion of Antecedent Sculptures .

Bronze working techniques

One of the most used techniques for the production of Ancient Bronze Statues is the lost wax technique. There are two methods of making these sculptures : direct method ( Full Sculpture ) and indirect method ( Hollow Sculpture ).
The direct method is much faster, but it could have been used for small statues, Animal Statuettes for example, because making a large and full statue was particularly difficult to handle.
Before proceeding, you need to make a wax model and cover it with clay, so as to create a mold for our final statue .
Now let's heat this mold of ours and see how the wax comes out of the tubes, made in our clay surface. The molten Bronze must flow inside these channels and fill the inside of our mould. Once dried, we remove the mold and obtain the starting Bronze Bust of our wax model. The second technique, the indirect method, is more complicated and takes more time, but for large works it is the best choice.
In this case, we prepare the original model in clay and cover it with wax on top of it. A subsequent layer is composed of the clay, which also has channels through which the molten wax is removed from the model to make room for the Cast Bronze .
Are there only two methods of processing Bronze ?
The answer is no, there is a third technique that allows for the infinite production of models: sand casting. This method has flaws, real masterpieces did not always come out. The quality of the Ancient Bronze Figurines was inferior and much smaller in size than the indirect method.
So what was this procedure used for?
With the third method, Medals or Bas-Reliefs were produced.
Bottomless boxes (brackets) were taken, the size of the Bronze Objects to be made, and stacked one on top of the other. The molds were created through models that were pressed on the clay-based earth, leaving the mold of the model. At this point the Bronze was poured and, once dried, the front part of the Bronze Statuettes was finished, the one that the observers saw, while the rear part was left raw, as it was when it was made. In terms of preparation methods, one thing unites all three techniques, namely the removal of the Bronze Pouring channels.
Last step?
Finish the Bronze Objects and polish them, to have a better result.
