National Geographic : 1976 Nov
FOR CENTURIES, FINE ARTISTS HAVE BEEN DESIGNING THE GIFTS YOU CAN GIVE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. Sculptors, goldsmiths, potters, carvers. Throughout the centuries, inspired designers, artists and crafts men have dedicated themselves to creating works of great beauty. And now, The National Society of the Fine Arts is making available, in the form of the most respected museum reproductions ever created, seven revered sculptural pieces representing a range of cultural periods, from antiquity to contemporary times. These important works of art and history were once confined to museums or to specialized private collections. Now they can be brought into the home, not as ordinary "copies" but museum quality reproductions of great integrity, crafted by Alva Museum Replicas, a division of Time-Life. THE FINEST QUALITY. THE MOST INTRIGUING DETAIL. Created under exacting standards, with the author ization and active collaboration of the museums, collectors and artists with whom the originals reside, each piece is a work of tremendous beauty, fascination and appeal. With few exceptions, each piece is of the same size as the original, the master model having been obtained by actual impressions from the original by special, museum-approved processes. Made of a copyrighted casting material, each is meticulously hand finished to mirror the original in color, texture, and detail. In addition, a card of authentication is included with each piece, supplying fascinating historial, cultural and technical details, and signifying that the piece is an authentic reproduc tion, made from a copyrighted mold of the original. THE GIFT OF ART. FOR FRIENDS, OR FOR YOUR PRIVATE COLLECTION. You may order as many pieces as you wish from our holiday series. Each piece can be shipped either to you, or directly to the person to whom you wish to send it as a gift. The collection will continue to be available after the holidays, to purchase for yourself or as ideal business, graduation, birthday or anniversary gifts.
