Here are some of the raw cast bronze pieces and the welding and fettling work that goes into making a statue whole. This is the preliminary work so don't be worried about it looking like the end result yet as there is still a lot to be done and the whole piece to still be patinated. The statue will fit on the plinth nicely.
