Bronze sculpture details
Schröder implements the physiognomy of the animal powerfully: The muscular colossal bull appears almost majestic. However, the traces of Schröder's modelling work are still visible - the surface is not smoothed or concealed excessively. This is precisely what gives the bull its archaic-looking power and dynamic.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand
The sculptural talent of the native-born Russian Krasnoturinsk Waldemar Schröder was already visible in his childhood days: he was only 10 years old when he received his first award for a 20 cm high woodcarving ("Der Bär als Kontrabassist"). Schröder won a school competition in trade arts and crafts. So it is not surprising that his artistic life was extremely straightforward.
