Chimera Stone Statue
This Chimera statue has been handcrafted in reconstituted stone, which has almost exactly the same appearance as quarried stone. This gargoyle-like character will give your garden an archetypal Gothic look.
- Reconstituted stone - almost indistinguishable from quarried stone
- Handmade in the UK - casting process and stone crafted by hand to ensure the highest quality
- Stone composition enables spontaneous moss growth - quickly develops an antique patina, blending in with your garden
The structure of the stone encourages moss and lichen growth; this enables the piece to acquire an antique appearance so that it will effortlessly blend in with the surroundings of your garden. This statue has been handmade by specialist craftsmen in the UK who ensure that every piece meets the same high standards. Reconstituted stone has been around for centuries but first became very popular in stately homes in the 16th century. In the 20th century the method of creating reconstituted stone improved so that it became possible to create sculptures that are even more durable and hard-wearing.
The Chimera is originally a creature from Greek mythology, but it has come to mean "any mythical or fictional fantasy creature". This winged character is the same type of animal that architects have used as gargoyles on buildings for centuries.Specifications
