Amazon.com is best known as being the place to go to find books, dvds and music. It is less well know as a great place to shop for just about anything, including museum-quality reproduction statuary.
Whether you are shopping for yourself or buying a wedding, birthday, anniversary, graduation, Bar Mitzvah, Mothers Day or Fathers Day gift, if you dig around you will find some neat items. Here are a few that I like:
The New York Public Library Lions, Patience and Fortitude, make fantastic bookends
This one is known as Cathedral by Auguste Rodin, and it is an amazing and inspiring work
This statue of the Prophet Isaiah is from an original work by Moissaye Marans, often known as “The Sculptor of Peace”
This is one of several versions of Degas’ famous dancer statues
Creating Memories by Alice Heath captures something of the Mother/Daughter bond.
The Age of Bronze is a classic figure study by Rodin
Brancusi’s ‘Kiss’ is very popular as a wedding gift
Rodin’s ‘The Kiss’ is much different but is also a popular gift for weddings and other romantic occasions
Nike Winged Victory is an altogether different work
Last but not least, Rodin’s classic “The Thinker,” which is made in two sizes.
