Lifesize bronze animal sculptures have been in production since the antiquities. They can be used to decorate both indoor and outdoor spaces due to their ability to blend in with all elements of décor. There are many reasons for people buying life-size bronze animals. While some are just fulfilling their desire as art collectors, others want to add some levels of elegance to their homes, stores, and offices. After all, a bronze statue can be a great centrepiece for interior décor.
However, you cannot just go out to buy a bronze statue without doing your homework. It is important to be cognizant of the materials from which the bronze sculpture is made. If you are buying an antique, you should be able to tell which the original is and which is not.

You could be one of those buyers looking for lifesize bronze animals from a specific period in history. Other people could be contented with displaying bronze sculptures from different time periods.
Period When the Sculpture Was Produced
( Come and visit the bronze zoo at the Canonbury Antiques Hertfordshire architectural salvage section )
Even though bronze was used to make sculptures for millennia, it was during the 19th and 20 centuries when some of the best animal figures were produced. Known as modernism, the movement that defined art at that time dwelt on animal representations in the form of geometric shapes. During the art nouveau period, symmetry was included in all forms of bronze sculpture, including animals.
Originals and Reproductions

Technological advances have made it possible for artists to replicate original bronze sculptures. In most cases, the reproductions are scaled down or produced with the same scale as the original sculpture. If you are looking for lifesize bronze animals on a budget, you may opt for the reproductions.
However, if you are in need for original sculptures, then you have to authenticate it. There are a few things you will have to keep in mind in order to arrive at the right answer. Look at the certificate of authentication and the artist’s signature. Where the certificate of authentication is lost, there must be a substitute one with the signature of a third-party.

Check if the sculpture is made of molten or bonded bronze. Importantly, check the art form and style of the animal bronze.
