Luna By Erol

From
750 euros
The moon as never seen before and a world premiere with a realistic bronze cast
A hyper realistic artistic representation of Earth’s satellite, Luna is a 3-dimensional globe of 28 cm in diameter that perfectly reproduces the sculpted relief of our satellite.
Thanks to its size, it is easy to feel the diversity of its surface, observe it from every angle and take it into your hands - be careful, however, with the bronze statue that weighs more than 13 kg -.
All its craters, faults, mountains and seas, the results of intense meteorite bombardment, are represented with great precision : the technical definition of the surface of the globe is calculated numerically, the altimetry data is provided by NASA, the file resolution is 50 million points, one point for every kilometer of the moon. On a scale of 1 meter in diameter, the landforms have been exaggerated three times.
Made in France, original artwork and limited edition individually numbered.

DOCUMENTATION

‘’
Erol in a few lines
An engineering graduate from Arts et Métiers, Erol imagined a series of sculptures based on his mastery of digital technologies. It is with computer tools that he expresses his universe more precisely. A visionary and sometimes an activist, he questions us about our perception of the world. All his works have the same fixed idea: to show what makes the essence of things. Whether he simplifies his works by only keeping the fundamental lines or he pushes precision to the extreme, as in his particularly realistic representation of the planets and the moon, he does it to always show us the imprint of reality.

At the artist’s request, the art foundry, Fonderie Fusions, has created the bronzes of Luna by Erol. Every cast is unique, numbered and signed by the artist with the official seal of the foundry . From the “master” mould made by the Créaform company, the foundry craftsmen used the lost wax casting process and then performed a traditional patina on bronze.

Luna Light

Manufactured using the rotational moulding process. It consists of a moulding of plastic material by rotation so as to reproduce the surface of the moon to the millimetre. The study of Luna's mould was paramount. The artist supervised the work of the moulder so it was closer to the final piece. As a result, a great deal of attention has been given to its finish, especially so that the joint plane becomes invisible. The final step, entrusted to a patination expert, is to reproduce the natural hues of the moon.
