This statue, representing Peter van Coudenberghe, was made in 1861 to honour him by the Royal Pharmacy Association of Antwerp. According to an enscription, the statue was restored in 1996 with the cooperation of the Cornelis Florgis foundation, and the support of an A.C. Mamur. The van Coudenberghe family belonged to the seven noble families that acted as aldermen in the city administration of brussels in the middle ages. The noble families lost some power when they were forced to share their power with craftsmen. However, by aligning themselves with a craft, the noble families were able to be constantly re-elected into the city council. The Van Coudenberghe’s aligned themselves with the guild of pewter casters. Peter van Coudenberghe was born may 16th, 1517 in Brussels, the oldest of 14 children. He eventually settled in Antwerp when he was older. He became a pharmacist, and Antwerp was ideal for this. As a port city, Antwerp received many herbs and spices from the Far East, Africa, and the Americas, ideal for making remedies and medicines. He grew close with famous botanists of the time, eventually writing books on the topic of plants and herbology. With the Spanish siege of Antwerp later in the 16th century, all crops around the city were destroyed, and Coudenberghe’s crops pulled from the garden, destroying his lifes work as a botanist-pharmacist

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.
