I really like how the pose of this figure emblematises the "flame". She reaches her hand out just like a never satisfied fire that longs for new nourishment. In addition to that, it seems so fragile that one has the feeling that she could be blown out (or away) any moment, just like a candlelight. Really awesome!
I wish it was that simple! You have to make a mould of the original clay sculpture, then cast it in hollow wax, then attach a sprue system to it, then coat it in a form of cement, then bake it in a kiln and melt out the wax, then pour the bronze into the cavity that remains, then break off the cement shell, then cut, grind, weld, polish and colour the bronze, then mount it on a base
