On the bronze market, statues representing a woman are the best-selling, the most sought after by collectors. Their estimates are much more valuable than other works of art. In most cases, the sculptor's signature is engraved on the statue to bring more value and originality.
bronze is an alloy that contains copper, which can oxidize when combined with moisture, creating patina. This reaction creates that green tint of copper carbonate on your skin after wearing a piece for awhile. This discoloration happens most often with rings, due to the close proximity of skin to the bronze.
