Digital Bronze Reproductions
The Frederic Remington Art Museum has created the finest reproductions available by scanning an original in 3D.
Remington's famed Broncho Buster, 1895 from the original lifetime casting #23
The Rattlesnake from the original lifetime casting #14
Cast in the US using the traditional lost wax bronze casting method. Each cast is proofed twice in production by the Museum's Curator. Nothing compares.
Ordinary bronze reproductions begin as an artist examines pictures or actual originals and then creates a clay model from scratch. The fidelity to Remington’s originals varies widely.
Our process begins with scientific accuracy. The first steps employ a technology undreamt of in Remington’s day: A 3D laser scanner captured every minute detail. The scanning data is then employed to create a positive copy in resin. This hyper accurate copy is then employed to make molds and continue production in a manner similar to Remington’s day, all under the direct supervision of the Remington Museum’s Curator.
