Vienna Bronzes have been produced since 1850. There are thousands of different Vienna bronzes. Each bronze separately cast. This means, if you have a bronze boy on a rug, the boy is one piece and the rug is one piece. There is only one individual doing all the casting and filing. The bronzes are sand-casted. This is a procedure that consists of wet sand. They take the original mold, press it into the sand, which leaves an impression. Then the man pours in the hot bronze. He lets it cool and then will hand file each piece. The pieces are then soldered together to create the boy on the rug. Once the bronze is produced, it is carefully hand painted by Artists with oil paint. Many hours of painstaking effort goes into producing one of these fine works of Art.

Vienna bronzes are famous and distinguished by their detailed representation of human figures, and all species of animals, ranging from Orientalism, erotic nude figures to life-like birds of prey or comical frogs, pigs, dogs, cats, and insects
