Of the size, it was taken to the foundry to take out its mold in silicone and fiberglass for its subsequent reproduction in wax. It is retouched and prepared for the process of lost wax and then immersed in the stoneware liquids, which once solidified, we proceed to place the cast bronze.
At high temperatures and avoiding thermal shocks, the Work was emptied in bronze, and then left to rest.
