This is a very grand  sculpture of one of Britain's greatest ever military heroes.

On 21 October 1805, the Franco-Spanish fleet came out of port and Admiral Horatio Nelson's fleet engaged them at the Battle of Trafalgar. The battle was Britain's greatest naval victory, but Nelson was hit by a French sharpshooter and mortally wounded.

During the 'Hundred Days' in 1815, Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington, commanded the allied army which famously defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.

The attention to detail in capturing the uniform and facial expressionof this great military leader is absolutely fantastic.

The bronze is set on an attractive marble base and is signed indistinctly.

 

This high quality hot cast solid bronze was produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.

Lost Wax Method
sometimes called by the French name of cire perdue or the Latin, cera perduta is the process by which a bronze or brass is cast from an artists sculpture.

In industrial uses, the modern process is called investment casting. An ancient practice, the process today varies from foundry to foundry, but the steps which are usually used in casting small bronze sculptures in a modern bronze foundry are generally quite standardised.
