Bronze sculptures are inherently very strong due to the unique characteristics of this metal. Because of its strength, bronze is often used to cast striking poses of figures in action with arms, legs or other attributes extended far from the body of sculpture or statue. Bronze also fills the molds which are used during casting very well due to its unique expansion properties.
Bronze sculptures can last for a very long time with proper maintenance and care. However, if bronze pieces are not protected and cared for, they can be susceptible to damage and require the services of a professional bronze sculpture repair specialist.
