What is a Replica?
Re-creations and custom art project.
A replica is a highly accurate copy of the original work Replicated by talented artists. They bring the art to life; you can see, touch and feel the brushstrokes. Our reproductions are made the same way the artist did it. When you purchase a replica from Museum Replicas, you're getting more than your money's worth.
How well does a reproduction resemble the original?
Our reproductions make you feel the passion of the artist. Our paintings aren’t "transfers" of a photographic image on to canvas, but are hand painted on a pure linen canvas by talented artists. This gives work of art a more authentic feel that is sure to enhance whatever room you place it in.

The Process for replicating Bronze.
Bronzes are created from original sculptures from which master molds are created. Each casting is created with the same eye for detail and quality of the product as the original.
Legal re-creations of masterful works of Byzantine Mosaic, Byzantine Icon, garden statue, and tapestry.
The sculptures Museum Replicas creates to enhance homes and businesses are made with the age old “Lost wax method” (cire-perdue). The, lost wax method of bronze casting is at least 6,000 years old. The earliest works were solid (a single mass). It was 2,000 years later that artisans learned to cast hollow sculptures
High artistic skills and a considerable amount of time go into the production of each Sculpture. The lost wax method technique involves a great amount of steps. Following the steps taken in the reproduction of "The little Dancer" after Edgar Degas.

Is this legal?
Absolutely. Museum Replicas wants to stress that these works are copies and we do not attempt to pass them off as an originals. We only produce copies of works which have passed out of copyright and into public domain. This means that the artists must have been deceased for at least seventy years. Our reproductions are legal copies of tapestries,vases, garden statue, Byzantine Mosaic, and Byzantine Icon, so this has nothing to do with forgery.
