What is the Truth about Race Warriors?

Race Warriors (also known as Race Bronzes or Bronzid Races) are two life-size Greek bronze statues of nudes. They are warriors with thick beards. The statues were discovered by Stefano Mariottini on August 16, 1972, in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Reis, Italy. The statues, which date back to the 5th century BC, are believed to represent two warriors and are considered to be some of the finest examples of ancient Greek sculpture.

The Riace Warriors are currently housed at the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia in Reggio Calabria, Italy, and have become an important symbol of Calabria and its ancient Greek heritage. The identity of the warriors remains uncertain, but it is believed that they were created by the same artist who made the statue of the Discus Thrower (also known as the Discobolus) and that they may have been commissioned by the city of Rhegium (modern-day Reggio Calabria) to commemorate a military victory. The statues were found in the sea and it is believed that they were lost during a shipwreck.

Using the Traditional Lost Wax Method:

Our artists cast this ancient Riace Warriors sculpture for you using the traditional lost wax method. Second, in this process, we added silica sol (an excellent nanomaterial, strong acid-resistant material). It is very different from traditional ammonia (ammonia is acidic and the bronze color changes after rain) and avoids white spots on the statue.

We all know that white spots could damage statues. However, some traditional manufacturers still use ammonia and their statues would have white spots. In the end, their bronze sculptures just stay beautiful for a while. There is no doubt that the bronze sculptures at the YouFine factory would become more patina over time.
