Bronze

From 15th century onward, European makers and patrons of the arts sought to emulate the tastes and technologies of their Greco-Roman forebears.
Bronze statuette production began in Florence in the mid-15th century, soon spreading to Padua, Mantua, Venice, and eventually to northern Europe. Replicating the iconography of the ancient civilisations, these pieces were created for private collectors, designed to be placed on desks or as garden statues or in cabinets.
