Eirene (Goddess of Peace) with Ploutus (God of Wealth) on her arm, 374 A.D., acquired 1894/1895, The Royal Cast Collection (Copenhagen, Denmark). Made with Memento Beta (now Remake) from Autodesk. Eirene more commonly known in English as Peace, was one of the Horae, the personification of peace. She was depicted in art as a beautiful young woman carrying a cornucopia, sceptre, and a torch or rhyton. She is said sometimes to be the daughter of Zeus and Themis. Her Roman equivalent was Pax. Plutus was the god of wealth in ancient Greek religion and myth. He was the son of Demeter and Iasion, with whom she lay in a thrice-ploughed field. In the theology of the Eleusinian Mysteries he was regarded as the “Divine Child.” His relation to the classical ruler of the underworld Pluto, with whom he is often conflated, is complex, as Pluto was also a god of wealth and money.(Wikipedia) As restored from copies, this statue showed Eirene, the personification of peace, standing nearly frontal, with her weight on her left leg, and her right leg relaxed. She wore a peplos, a himation draped over both shoulders (seemingly attached where peplos was fastened), long hair, some rolled around a taenia, with an ampyx (hairband) revealing itself at the front, earrings (made from metal?), and thick-soled sandals. She turned her head in a 3/4-view, tilted down, to look at the baby Ploutos, personification of wealth, cradled in her left arm, along with a keras (horn of plenty). Ploutos, seated 3/4-view to the left, with legs crossed, wearing a himation draped over his knees, lower legs, and thighs tilted his head in 3/4-back-view to the left, looking up at Eirene, reaching his right arm up to her, and his left arm down at his side. This statue was probably commissioned to celebrate either a peace made with Sparta in 374 B.C., after Timotheos' victory over the Spartans (also the founding of Eirene's cult in Athens) or the peace of Kallias in 371 B.C. Since an image of the statue is pictured on Panathenaic amphorae of 360/59 B.C

Sculpture reproductions are a popular way of making art more accessible. We use several methods to create reproduction sculptures, each with its unique process.

  • Creation of plastic sculptures:

To create a plastic sculpture reproduction, we use 3D printing technology. The first step is to print a plastic version of the original sculpture using a 3D printer. After 3D printing, we process the plastic sculpture by hand, which includes sanding, smoothing, filling any gaps or imperfections, and covering the sculptures with a special material to ensure durability for outdoor use. Our goal is to create a high-quality replica that faithfully reproduces the original sculpture. Once the plastic sculpture has been sanded and smoothed, we paint it by hand using high-quality paint in plaster, marble, bronze, and other colors to achieve a durable finish.

  • Creating impressions:

Many reproductions are created using environmentally friendly materials such as marble, plaster, and bronze. These materials are used to create high-quality replicas that look and feel like the original sculpture. The process of creating a casting involves making a mold of the original sculpture and then pouring the chosen material into the mold. This process requires a lot of manual work to keep the shape accurate and without air bubbles.

After the material has hardened, we remove the mold and clean and finish the reproduction by hand. This process ensures that each sculpture is a high-quality copy of the original sculpture.

Creating reproductions of sculptures requires great skill and attention to detail. Regardless of whether we use 3D printing technology or traditional casting methods, our goal is always the same: to create a high-quality replica of the original sculpture that accurately reflects the artist's vision. With the use of environmentally friendly materials and an emphasis on manual work, we ensure that our reproductions are of the highest quality.

  • Production and delivery time

Sculptures up to 18 inches in size take 2 to 3 weeks to produce. We do not have mass production, as each sculpture is handmade by our craftsmen, making each sculpture unique. Sculptures larger than 18 inches require different lead times, depending on the size and complexity of the sculpture and its coating. Our managers will let you know the lead time for custom orders.

Delivery takes on average 2 weeks from the time of shipment. Since we are located in Ukraine, delivery time depends on the recipient country. But usually it is not more than 3 weeks anywhere in the world.
