Solid Bronze Saber-toothed Tiger Cast

The hot bronze casting method involves an ancient process which dates back many thousands of years. It involves producing a hollow wax image of the sculpture which is then coated in a thick ceramic layer which is allowed to dry thoroughly. The wax is burned away leaving a ceramic shell into which molten bronze is poured. Once cooled, the shell is smashed away to reveal the casting which is then cleaned and patinated by heating the bronze with a blow torch and applying a variety of chemicals. This is then left to cool and wax polished. Hot cast sculptures can last many thousands of years whether indoors or outside in the elements.

Sabertooth Cat Tarpit Finish 1:3 Scale

Excavated from the famous La Brea Tar Pits, this specimen represents one of the largest, most complete saber-toothed cats ever found. This specimen's impressive canines measure 6.5" (16.5cm) long. This Pleistocene predator hunted by ambushing large mammals, slashing them with its canines, then following the animal till it bled to death. This species was also prone to scavenging dead and dying prey, which ultimately brought many of its kind to meet their fate in the tar pits. The saber-toothed cat became extinct over 10,000 years ago as its prey became more and more scarce due to human competition. This specimen is available in the "Tar Pit" finish as well as the "Antique Bone" finish. Product Type: Skull and stand Notes: 1:3 scale museum quality replica 3-part skull (separate cranium, jaw, and base) Sabers are not removable Please see photo for details and feel free to call with any questions.
