    3.  What materials are used? 
    Materials of the finest quality are used to produce these lasting pieces of art.  Metal sculptures are brass (approximately 2/3 copper).  Stone bases are marble or granite.  Wood bases are hardwood with medium-sheen black finish.
    4.  What are the various finishes used, and what care is needed? 
  • Patina Finish: Soft oxidized (green) copper color.  Dust or wipe with soft cloth.  Buffing with jewelry cloth can restore luster.
  • "Bronze" Finish: Rich, coppery brown.  Dust or buff with soft cloth.  Damp cloth will remove dirt.
  • Polished Brass: The color of shiny copper or gold, like a trumpet.  Brass polish may be used only on these areas (about once a year).
