Within a few months, workshops near Yekaterinburg, the sculptor, "sculpted" clay model of the product in full size. Fabricated and cast bronze sculpture in Yekaterinburg by the private foundry. Like, magnified copies of classical works of Nicholas Laveretskogo not so much in our country. The most famous of them: "Russian" in the Kremlin's Catherine Hall, a height of about 2 meters and 3-meter sculpture at the railway station in Chelyabinsk In these days of "Russia" has gained a lot of popularity in the form of small souvenir statuettes, despite the fact that the forming, and embossing the sculpture is one of the most time-consuming to manufacture casting products art. The sculpture is formed by one of the most difficult ways to hand-formed, the composition itself is going out of fifteen items. Mint sculpture only the most skilled craftsmen. We use several types of punches: separate tools for stamping hair, chain, eyes. The special skill is required in the processing of smooth surfaces: in the hands of experienced chaser flowing folds of the clothes become like rippling silk.
