Eternal Bronze (cherub)

February 5, 2016

 

Art takes time, it's true. But art made of bronze can last thousands of years. We have bronze artifacts from as early as the 5th millennium BCE.

 

The base of the famous Titanic cherub was recovered from the ocean floor in excellent condition as shown here. Its much smaller brother from the aft staircase was found sans foot and light, but otherwise in very good shape.
