Additional Information—

From the time of the introduction of bronze for swords and weapons, great civilizations incorporated bronze in folk art and sculpture. The ancient Japanese, from at least 1200BC, knew lost-wax casting, section mould casting, and sand casting. The finishing techniques incorporated corrosive materials to form a natural patina, like what is shown in this walkway or indoor garden lantern.
