Circle of Love
Created by Nnamdi Okonkwo
"Circle of Love" is a depiction in bronze of a man, woman, and child, symbolizing the beauty and oneness of the family unit. To create it, the figures are first sculpted in clay, then cast in bronze using the lost wax technique. A hot patina is applied using compounds that are specifically formulated for bronze patination. The finished sculpture is sealed with clear lacquer and is then waxed and buffed.
