Wax Sculpture

During the Renaissance, wax sculptures were popular as ex-votos, religious offerings that were placed in churches and chapels to give thanks for answered prayers. As a medium, wax is particularly useful to recreate the effect of human flesh. As a result, it was widely used in portraiture, and wax busts are eerily lifelike. Today, even though new media and techniques have been developed for that purpose, wax is still a much appreciated medium. Thanks to its soft texture and ability to effectively take on the most vivid of colours, it occupies a special place in the studios of numerous sculptors. Whether you are looking for figurative or abstract sculpture, coloured or natural, you are sure to find your pick in our selection of wax sculptures
