Wim van der Kant
Aquila- 21st Century Contemporary Bronze Realistic Sculpture of a Nude Boy

2021

$13,326

About

Aquila Bronze Sculpture on pedestal of marble Hight bronze 57 cm with pedestal of marble (included) 68 cm Wim van der Kant's sculptures are in bronze. Dutch artist Wim van der Kant does everything in the process itself. As a result, only a few sculptures of the artist are available for sale. What struck us first during our acquaintance with the artist is the enormous passion for his work, the attention to detail, and the incredible amount of work hidden behind the images shown. The sculptures Wim van der Kant makes show perfection when it comes to the posture and anatomy of the playing boys. But also emotion when it comes to the expression and their attitude. The images of Wim van der Kant show boys, naked, playing, uninhibited. After modeling in wax, the shape, anatomy, posture, actually everything, is perfectly executed. Yet there is still a long way to go. A mold is made of silicone from the waxed wax image. This mold serves to cast the bronze sculptures. The mold is used for a maximum of 8 times. When the image is cast in bronze the next phase begins. The cooled bronze is freed from its mold. Then the bronze is processed. This gives it the bronze color or the gray color. This is called patination. This patination and refining of the bronze is an intensive process that can take up to 80 hours in one image. Because the anatomy and the small details in the images are of great importance, the artist does all this himself abrasion and patination. We always have work in stock from this particularly gifted artist. The last picture shows the way we ship our sculptures, safe and firm packed in a big wooden box.
