Drawing casts were originally used by European student artists during the Middle Ages as a means of practice for drawing and painting. Those studying art would use casts as means to practice scale and obtain realism, which was a popular movement at the time. Using drawing casts had the benefit of being inanimate. The student artist could take their time practicing their hand at shadowing and illustrating depth while using a drawing cast. Drawing casts usually consisted of geometrical shapes, hands and faces. Famous artists who used drawing casts in their studies include Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Raphael.

Present day, drawing cast are still used by students. Those interested in teaching or learning art fundamentals would find our Geometrical Shape Set of Ten of great use.  The geometrical shapes are also highly desirable pieces for art collectors. Anyone with an eye for art and who is a lover of history would love to add the School Of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Horse Sculpture to their collection.

Drawing casts also make great gifts for those in the medical field. The exquisite details of the Ecorche Anatomical Man Study Model Artist Cast Sculpture  makes this statue a great medical school graduate gift.

Stephen Otten unveils his sculpture "David"

Stephen Otten unveils his sculpture “David”

Statue.com’s Gloria and Ann had the pleasure of attending the unveiling of a special sculpture. It is quite unusual to see this type of sculpture done within the United States, much less in the Midwest. The sculptor’s material of choice was bonded marble, more commonly used in Italy.

The building material is not the only special attribute of the sculpture. The statue unveiled was crafted by Steve Otten. His ambition was inspired by famous sculptor Michelangelo and his rendition of David during a trip to Italy. This trip came at a special point in Otten’s life as he was suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome from his career as a Navy SEAL. After his trip, Otten focused his energy upon studying and training at local community colleges and an art studio. Working on his sculpture has helped him cope with his experience of war and provided an outlet for a passion and determination.

The beauty of art is that it can transcend just aesthetics and take on an element of healing and hope. We believe Steve Otten has proven just that.

Furthermore, we are proud to include many sculptures and other art-forms to express gratitude of our veterans and those currently serving. Head on over to Statue.com to see our entire gallery.
