More About The ‘Lost Wax’ Method of Bronze Casting
This method of creating bronze statues and other bronze sculptures has been around since at least the 3rd millennium BCE and has been extensively used by most cultures across the globe with the exception of Australia.
The method uses a wax model of the sculpture to be cast which is coated in a substance such as plaster or clay to create a mold. Once the mold is dry, the wax is heated and drained off, leaving a mold that has every single small detail of the original wax model. If a hollow bronze object is required then the wax model is built around a heat-resistant core which withstands the heating of both the wax and the molten metal.
The molten bronze is poured into the space created by the melted wax and left to harden. Once this has occurred the mold is broken open to reveal the bronze cast statue or sculpture.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).

It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
