Articulated wood models of the human form and of horses were in high demand for artists. Renaissance painters and sculptors of renown worked in ateliers with students, apprentices, and trained artists at hand. The walls of these workshops were filled with plaster casts of classic sculpture. Casts of busts, hands, feet, legs, arms, torsos. In our time, antique art models have always been in demand by cognoscenti for their esoteric presence. Sculpted in wood, elaborately jointed and movable. Highly expressive, they convey a message in style and classic taste.
