Abraham Lincoln Lawyer Relief - Cold Cast Bronze
Cherry Wood Base
The Lawyer relief is sculpted in life size and depicts a beardless attorney Lincoln in a classic Greek and Roman pose with a full side profile
of the head and a three quarters profile of the chest and shoulders. This is the same pose used in the Nobel prize medallion. The sculpture shows
Mr. Lincoln as a robust and vital, well groomed, and confident attorney and candidate with a firm resolve and a clear vision of the future. This
depiction is a strong and powerful image of the man who was elected our 16th president.
Photographs by Mel Schockner, Loveland Colorado
The Presidential relief utilizes the classic three quarters pose. It depicts President Lincoln fours years later after the pressures of the office
and the Civil War has aged him beyond his years. The two portraits make a ideal matching pair and together constitute a portrait of transition both
of Mr. Lincoln's and as a proxy for the changes endured by our country during the Civil War.
Due to the illumination from photographic lights, sculptural patinas are very difficult to photograph. Since these castings have a bronze surface, the patina is
hand applied using traditional bronze patina techniques. The color is a rich dark aged brown with a hint of red overlaying a golden undercoat. The brown patina is partially hand rubbed back to reveal varied and complexex golden bronze highlights which are evident on raised areas contrasted by subtle shadows in recessed areas. The resulting patina is rich and traditional and will appear different in different light settings. In a dark room the patina will appear dark and aged but under light the incredible golden brown patina will be revealed. Under direct sunlight or the photo flood lights used in these photographs, the finish will appear righter and lighter than normal. To prevent tarnishing, the patina is sealed with a lacquer coating and buffed with bronze paste wax. Although the surface is durable, care should be exercised to avoid scratches with metallic objects. Polish the casting with a dry soft dust cloth and once or twice a year use a small amount of paste wax.
