The figures are carved in beeswax.


The wax figures are carefully covered with clay to form the mold for the metals.

The molds are then heated to remove the wax.


Scrap metals are collected to melt for the casting. The metal is melted and mixed just before casting. A manually operated air pump speeds the melting.
The molten metal is carefully poured into the casts.

The molds are heated.
After the mold has cooled, it is broken away from the bronze and the bronze is cleaned and filed.
