Reproductions rarely form a part of any true art collection, but the circumstances leading to the re-creation of an ancient bronze statue for the Getty Museum were unique. With many accompanying photographs, David Rinne leads the reader through the fascinating process of casting a bronze statue utilizing molds taken from the head and foot of the original bronze in the Getty collection and the torso of the same statue from the Burdur Museum in Turkey.
