Relatively new to the world of statuary is the art of casting statues with fiberglass porcelain, a very durable synthetic polymer. Porcelain statues are able to retain all of the detail of the original works while offering many other benefits. They weigh less than cast-stone statues and, therefore, cost less to ship. They have a greater strength than some of the other materials that can be cast. And, the porcelain statues are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
