La Fe Victoriosa Casting Features
As the first step in the restoration process of a Renaissance bronze statue, a comprehensive study of the metallic product was carried out. This paper reports metallographic features and their possible relation to the casting process. Tensile properties are also discussed as they depend on porosity and lead content, what can be useful in the restoration process.
