Aurora - Replace Supportive Frame

Scope of Project:  Original piece was designed for indoor display.  Base was constructed from wood and the hammered copper figure was supported by a steel flat bar frame.  Client desired to place it in outdoor sculpture garden so these pieces were reproduced in silicon bronze.  The frame was reproduced in bronze by heating, twisting and bending to match as closely as possible to the dimensions of the original frame.
