Angelic Mary Bust Statue hand-cast using real crushed stone bonded with high quality designer resin and hand-finished by skilled artisans. Imaginatively created with one-of-a-kind details, from traditional to modern, this bust will enhance any environment in your home. Painted and sculpted by countless artists over the years, the sweetly pious Angelica Maria / Angelic Mary is inspired by a painting by Fra Filippo Lippi. History tells us he convinced a convent to allow him to paint a novice nun as the Holy Mother, then persuaded the maiden to run away with him to the shame of her family and her order. Amidst this dramatic tale of stolen love, the Virgin’s beauty is epitomized from her demurely downcast eyes to the gown draped across her softly curved shoulders. This quality designer resin replica is finished in a black bronze hue highlighted with gold accents to bring out each stunning detail. According to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament, Mary was a first-century Jewish woman of Nazareth, the wife of Joseph, and the mother of Jesus. Both the New Testament and the Quran describe Mary as a virgin. According to Christian theology, Mary conceived Jesus through the Holy Spirit while still a virgin, and accompanied Joseph to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.

Mary has been venerated since early Christianity, and is considered by millions to be the holiest and greatest saint because of her extraordinary virtues as seen at the Annunciation by the Archangel Gabriel. She is said to have miraculously appeared to believers many times over the centuries. The Eastern and Oriental Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican, and Lutheran churches believe that Mary, as mother of Jesus, is the Theotokos (Mother of God). There is significant diversity in the Marian beliefs and devotional practices of major Christian traditions. The Catholic Church holds distinctive Marian dogmas, namely her status as the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, her perpetual virginity, and her Assumption into Heaven. Many Protestants minimize Mary’s role within Christianity, basing their argument on the alleged lack of biblical support for any beliefs other than the virgin birth. Mary also has the highest position in Islam among all women. She is mentioned in the Quran more often than in the Bible, where 2 of the longer chapters of the Quran are named after her and her family. According to Catholic and Eastern Christian teachings, at the end of her earthly life, God raised Mary’s body into heaven. This is known in the Christian West as the Assumption of Mary, and in the East as the Dormition of the Mother of God. Angelic Mary “Mother of Jesus” Bust Statue measures: 7 inches / 18 cm x 11 inches / 28 cm x 17 inches / 43 cm.

An early domestication of Chickens in Southeast Asia is probable, since the word for domestic chicken (manuk) is part of the reconstructed Proto-Austronesian language. Chickens, together with dogs and pigs, were the domestic animals of the Lapita culture, the first Neolithic culture of Oceania. The first pictures of chickens in Europe are found on Corinthian Pottery of the 7th century BC.

Chickens were spread by Polynesian seafarers and reached Easter Island in the 12th century AD, where they were the only domestic animal, with the possible exception of the Polynesian rat (Rattus Exulans). They were housed in extremely solid chicken coops built from stone, which was first reported as such to Linton Palmer in 1868, who also “expressed his doubts about this“. The mythological Basilisk or Cockatrice is depicted as a reptile-like creature with the upper body of a chickens. Abraxas, a figure in Gnosticism, is portrayed in a similar fashion as well. Abraxas is a word of mystic meaning in the system of the Gnostic Basilides (an early Christian Gnostic religious teacher in Alexandria, Egypt who taught from 117 to 138 AD), and the word may be related to the famous word / magical invocation, Abracadabra.

Leonardo Da Vinci “Renaissance Man” Bust Statue

Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of “unquenchable curiosity” and “feverishly inventive imagination“, and epitomiz the Renaissance humanist ideal. This Leonardo Da Vinci Bust Statue features a wonderful metallic bronze finish that gives it the look of look of metal, and has hand painted accents to show the incredible detail. It makes a great gift for any classical art lover. Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, known simply as Leonardo da Vinci (Anchiano, April 15, 1452 – Amboise, May 2, 1519), was an Italian scientist, inventor and artist. A man of genius and universal talent of the Renaissance, considered one of the greatest geniuses of humanity, he fully embodied the spirit of his era, bringing it to the greatest forms of expression in the most disparate fields of art and knowledge: he was in fact a scientist, philosopher, architect, painter, sculptor, draftsman, essayist, set designer, mathematician, anatomist, botanist, musician, engineer and designer.

«Fu tanto raro e universale, che dalla natura per suo miracolo esser produtto dire si puote: la quale non solo della bellezza del corpo, che molto bene gli concedette, volse dotarlo, ma di molte rare virtù volse anchora farlo maestro. Assai valse in matematica et in prospettiva non meno, et operò di scultura, et in disegno passò di gran lunga tutti li altri. Hebbe bellissime inventioni, ma non colorì molte cose, perché si dice mai a sé medesimo avere satisfatto, et però sono tante rare le opere sue. Fu nel parlare eloquentissimo et raro sonatore di lira, et fu valentissimo in tirari et in edifizi d’acque, et altri ghiribizzi, né mai co l’animo suo si quietava, ma sempre con l’ingegno fabricava cose nuove». Anonimo Gaddiano. **(Language: Renaissance Italian).

«It was so rare and universal, that by its miracle it could be said that nature was produced: she not only wanted to endow it with the beauty of the body, which she very well granted it, but also wanted to make it a master of many rare virtues. He was very valuable in mathematics and in perspective no less, and he worked in sculpture, and in drawing he passed by far all the others. He had beautiful inventions, but he did not color many things, because he himself is never said to be satisfied, and yet his works are so rare. He was in speaking eloquent and rare lyre player, and he was very skilful in tirari and in water buildings, and other whims, never calmed down with his soul, but always with his ingenuity he built new things». Anonymous Gaddiano, manuscript of the National Central Library of Florence (XVII, 17th century).

The features of Leonardo are known thanks to a senile self-portrait attributed to him, dating back to around 1515 and preserved in the Royal Library of Turin. The work, from which other ideal portraits derive, is now part of the collective imagination. For the features of Leonardo at a young or mature age there are some hypotheses of identification, in his works or by other artists, as in the young man standing at the extreme right of the Adoration of the Magi, in Verrocchio‘s David or in the figure of Plato in the Raphael‘s School of Athens. There are also various sources which, even without describing his physical appearance in a precise way, speak of his ways and celebrate his beauty. For example, the Anonymous Gaddiano wrote: “Nature not only wanted to endow him with the beauty of the body, which he very well granted him, but also wanted to make him a master of many rare virtues. He was of a good person, proportionata, gratiata and handsome in appearance. He wore a pink bitch that was short up to the knee, which was then used in long dresses, he had a beautiful, ringed and well composed headdress up to the middle on his chest”.

Vasari instead caught the docile and loving aspect of his character:

«Egli con lo splendor dell’aria sua, che bellissima era, rasserenava ogni animo mesto, e con le parole volgeva al sì et al no ogni indurata intenzione. Egli con le forze sue riteneva ogni violenta furia. Con la liberalità sua raccoglieva e pasceva ogni amico povero e ricco, pur che egli avesse ingegno e virtù. Per il che ebbe veramente Fiorenza grandissimo dono nel nascere di Lionardo, e perdita più che infinita nella sua morte». **(Language: Renaissance Italian).

«With the splendor of his air, how beautiful he was, he calmed every sad soul, and with his words he turned every hard intention to yes and no. He with his strength held every violent fury. With his liberality she gathered and fed every poor and rich friend, as long as he had talent and virtue. For which reason Fiorenza truly had a great gift in the birth of Lionardo, and a more than infinite loss in his death».

Intimately tied to the concept of the modern zombie is the “Zombie Apocalypse“: the breakdown of society as a result of an initial zombie outbreak that spreads quickly. This archetype has emerged as a prolific subgenre of apocalyptic fiction and has been portrayed in many zombie-related media after Night of the Living Dead.

In a zombie apocalypse, a widespread (usually global) rise of zombies hostile to human life engages in a general assault on civilization. Victims of zombies may become zombies themselves. This causes the outbreak to become an exponentially growing crisis, the spreading phenomenon swamps normal military and law-enforcement organizations, leading to the panicked collapse of civilized society until only isolated pockets of survivors remain, scavenging for food and supplies in a world reduced to a pre-industrial hostile wilderness. Possible causes for zombie behavior in a modern population can be attributed to viruses, bacteria or other phenomena that reduce the mental capacity of humans, causing them to behave in a very primitive and destructive fashion.

The office of the queen mother is also known as the “stool“. In Ghana, queen mothers are selected from the royal family of each town and village.

The royal families are made up of the first settlers of an area. African Queen Mother Bust Statue sizes: 7.5 inches / 19 cm x 11.5 inches / 29 cm x 22.5 inches / 57 cm.

The bottom is felted to help keep your furniture scratch-free. He makes a great gift for enthusiasts of ancient Egypt mythology. Anubis, also known as Inpudecay“, was the ancient Egyptian Jackal-God of the Underworld and Mummification. Anubis was worshipped as the inventor of embalming and the one who embalmed the dead Osiris, thereby helping to preserve him that he might live again. The oldest known mention of Anubis is in the Old Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the king.

Anubis is also a God in Tuareg Berber mythology. Anubis takes various titles in connection with his funerary role, such as He-Who-Is-Upon-His-Mountain, which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs, and the title He-Who-Is-In-The-Place-Of-Embalming, associating him with the process of mummification. Like many ancient Egyptian deities, Anubis assumes different roles in various contexts, and no public procession in Egypt would be conducted without an Anubis to march at the head. There are a lot of different versions about his birth and conception. In early mythology, he is protrayed as a son of Ra. In the Coffin Texts from the First Intermediate Period (2181-2055 BC), he is the son of Hesat or Bastet. Some traditions depicted him as son of Ra and Nephthys, others as the illegitimate son of Nephthys and Osiris, that was later adopted by Usir‘ wife, Aset, and others as son of Nephthys and Set.

In the version which he is the son of Nephthys and Usir, it is said that Nephthys tricked her brother, Usir, into fathering her child by using Aset appeareance. Nephthys told her husband-brother, Set, that the child was his but him soon found out. As Set hated Usir, he then planned to murder the child when he was born. Nephthys therefore, abandoned the child at birth hiding him in the marshes by the Nile River. The child was taken care by jackals and eventually found by Aset that raised Inpu as her own kid. When he became an adult, the repaid her by becoming her protector. The version in which he is the son of Nephthys and Set is not that different. It is said that, after Nephthys got pregnant with Set’s child, she tried to hide the pregnancy as she knew how violent Set could be. Fearing for the baby, Nephthys gave Inpu to Aset that eventually raised him. Ancient Egyptian Jackal God Anubis Bust Statue sizes: 5 inches / 13 cm x 4.5 inches / 11.5 cm x 9.5 inches / 24 cm.

Thor Odinson Wielding Mjolnir Hammer Bust Statue

This Thor Odinson God of Thunder Statue is made of designer composite resin, hand painted and polished individually. In the battle of Ragnarok, Thor will defeat the midgard serpent Jörmungandr with the swing of his Mjolnir Hammer. Thor is seen in battle outfit, with crossed long swords, his horned helmet and fearsome mail armor. The prince of Asgard shows his quality, strength and bravery in this ill fated war. This beautiful Thor statue depicts Thor Odinson Wielding the Mjolnir Hammer, fully clad in armor and battle attire. It is a bust statue so he will a gorgeous decor for your home. In Norse mythology, Thor is a Hammer-wielding God associated with lightning, thunder, storms, sacred groves and trees, strength, the protection of mankind, hallowing, and fertility. Thor is a prominently mentioned god throughout the recorded history of the Germanic peoples, from the Roman occupation of regions of Germania, to the Germanic expansions of the Migration Period, to his high popularity during the Viking Age, when, in the face of the process of the Christianization of Scandinavia, emblems of his hammer, Mjolnir, were worn and Norse pagan personal names containing the name of the god bear witness to his popularity.

Due to the nature of the Germanic corpus, narratives featuring Thor are only attested in Old Norse, where Thor appears throughout Norse mythology. Norse mythology, largely recorded in Iceland from traditional material stemming from Scandinavia, provides numerous tales featuring the god. Thor wields the Hammer Mjolnir, wears the Belt Megingjörð and the Iron Gloves Járngreipr, and owns the Staff Gríðarvölr. Thor’s exploits, including his relentless slaughter of his foes and fierce battles with the monstrous serpent Jörmungandr, and their foretold mutual deaths during the events of Ragnarök, are recorded throughout sources for Norse mythology. Into the modern period, Thor continued to be acknowledged in rural folklore throughout Germanic-speaking Europe. Thor is frequently referred to in place names, the day of the week Thursday bears his name (modern English Thursday derives from Old English Þunresdæg, “Þunor’s day“, and names stemming from the pagan period containing his own continue to be used today, particularly in Scandinavia. Thor has inspired numerous works of art and references to Thor appear in modern popular culture. Like other Germanic deities, veneration of Thor is revived in the modern period in Heathenrycontemporary Germanic Paganism“.

The English weekday name Thursday comes from Old English Þunresdæg, meaning “day of Þunor“. It is cognate with Old Norse Þórsdagr and with Old High German Donarestag. All of these terms derive from the Late Proto-Germanic weekday ÞonaresdagDay of Þunaraz“, a calque of Latin Iovis DiesDay of Jove“, modern Italian giovedì, French jeudi, Spanish jueves. By employing a practice known as interpretatio germanica during the Roman period, ancient Germanic peoples adopted the Latin weekly calendar and replaced the names of Roman gods with their own. Beginning in the Viking Age, personal names containing the theonym Thórr are recorded with great frequency, whereas no examples are known prior to this period. Thórr-based names may have flourished during the Viking Age as a defiant response to attempts at Christianization, similar to the wide scale Viking Age practice of wearing Thor’s hammer pendants. The Mjolnir so, is the hammer of the thunder god Thor in Norse mythology, used both as a devastating weapon and as a divine instrument to provide blessings. The hammer is attested in numerous sources, including 11th century runic Kvinneby amulet, and the Poetic Edda, a collection of eddic poetry compiled in the 13th century, and the Prose Edda, a collection of prose and poetry compiled in the 13th century.

The hammer was commonly worn as a pendant during the Viking Age in the Scandinavian cultural sphere, and Thor and his hammer occur depicted on a variety of objects from the archaeological record. Today the symbol appears in a wide variety of media and is again worn as a pendant by various groups, including adherents of modern Heathenry. The etymology of the hammer’s name, Mjolnir, is disputed among historical linguists. Old Norse Mjolnir developed from Proto-Norse melluniaR and one proposed derivation connects this form to Old Church Slavonic mlunuji and Russian molnija meaning “lightning” (either borrowed from a Slavic source or both stemming from a common source) and subsequently yielding the meaning “lightning-maker“. Another proposal connects Mjolnir to Old Norse mjÇ«ll meaning “new snow” and modern Icelandic mjalli meaning “the color white“, rendering Mjolnir as “shining lightning weapon“. Finally, another proposal connects Old Norse Mjolnir to Old Norse mala meaning “to grind” and Gothic malwjanto grind“, yielding Mjolnir as meaning “the grinder“. Thor Odinson Wielding Mjolnir Hammer Bust Statue measures: 15 inches / 38 cm x 15 inches / 38 cm x 10 inches / 25.5 cm.

Bigfoot the Thinker Statue

Evading detection to become a mythical legend, Bigfoot the Thinker has paused here to plan his next move. Known throughout the world as Bigfoot, Yeti or Sasquatch, this unique Bigfoot Thinker Statue allows you to host your own bigfoot sighting right in your own garden. Sculpted by hand by Bella Haus Design, this Bigfoot statue is made with a durable resin that is weather-resistant for safe use indoors and out, and features life-like details in various shades of brown for a realistic appearance that is sure to delight bigfoot believers and seekers. The Thinker (French: Le Penseur) is a bronze sculpture by Auguste Rodin, usually placed on a stone pedestal. The work depicts a nude male figure of heroic size sitting on a rock. He is seen leaning over, his right elbow placed on his left thigh, holding the weight of his chin on the back of his right hand. The pose is one of deep thought and contemplation, and the statue is often used as an image to represent philosophy. Rodin first conceived the figure as part of his work The Gates of Hell commissioned in 1880, but the first of the familiar monumental bronze castings was made in 1904, and is now exhibited at the Musée Rodin, in Paris.

There are also 27 other known full-sized castings, in which the figure is approximately 185 cm (73 inches) high, although not all were made during Rodin’s lifetime and under his supervision. There are various other versions, several in plaster, and studies and posthumous castings exist in a range of sizes. The Thinker was initially named The Poet (French: Le Poète), and was part of a large commission begun in 1880 for a doorway surround called The Gates of Hell. Rodin based this on The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri, and most of the figures in the work represented the main characters in the poem with The Thinker at the center of the composition over the doorway and somewhat larger than most of the other figures. Some critics believe that it was originally intended to depict Dante at the Gates of Hell, pondering his great poem. Other critics reject that theory, pointing out that the figure is naked while Dante is fully clothed throughout his poem, and that the sculpture’s physique does not correspond to Dante’s effete figure. The sculpture is nude, as Rodin wanted a heroic figure in the tradition of Michelangelo, to represent intellect as well as poetry.

This detail from the Gates of Hell was first named The Thinker by foundry workers, who noted its similarity to Michelangelo’s statue of Lorenzo de Medici called Il Pensieroso (The Thinker), and Rodin decided to treat the figure as an independent work at a larger size. The figure was designed to be seen from below and is normally displayed on a fairly high plinth, although the heights vary considerably chosen by the various owners. The Thinker has been cast in multiple versions and is found around the world, but the history of the progression from models to castings is still not entirely clear. About 28 monumental-sized bronze casts are in museums and public places. In addition, there are sculptures of different study-sized scales and plaster versions (often painted bronze) in both monumental and study sizes. Some newer castings have been produced posthumously and are not considered part of the original production. Rodin made the first small plaster version around 1881. The first full-scale model was presented at the Salon des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1904. A public subscription financed a bronze casting, which became the property of the City of Paris, and was put in front of the Panthéon. In 1922, the original bronze was moved to the Rodin Museum.
