THE MAKING OF A STATUE.
The Science of Mechanics Presaed
lnt?> the Service of Art.
When wo look upon a finished marble
statue, saya an expert, we rarely think
of the time and labor that have been
ixpended upon it. First, a model must
be made; but even preliminary to this
Ihe sculptor puts his ideas in the form
pf a rough "sketch" in clay or wax, ac?
cording to the delicacy required. Here
Ihe main points are rapidly molded in,
und some-idea is obtained of how the
statue will look when it is finished. A
passing thought, an idea, is in this way
fixed, and is more carefully worked up
lu the model. Aa a rule, the first model
is small, and is of clay or wax, and
at first consists of a nucleus of tow or
some such material, on which the clay
Is laid. Bit by bit it is built up, until
by trimming and adding-, flattening and
lounding oiT, the figure comes to as?
sume its proper proportions. The rough
outlines of the "sketch" are developed,
new ideas arc added, others arc altered,'
und by degrees the realization of the
sculptors thoughts begins to appear
in the clay.
In the actual manipulation great care
must be taken that the clay is of the
proper consistence and possesses the
requisite amount of moisture, otherwise
it may become dry and crack. A still
more serious accident is where the clay
crumbles to pieces. In this way tho
labor of months may in a few minutes
vanish into a mass of debris, an ex?
perience which many sculptors have
had. To guard against this the clay
must from time to time be moistened,
ind when work is finished for the day
the model must be carefully covered
with damp cloths. In this way acci?
dents may be prevented. When large
models have to be made, extra precau?
tions must be taken against drying.
The nucleus must be made strong, of
iron rods along tho lines where there
is least support, as in the case of out?
stretched armF or legs, and the rods
must be properly fixed in a stable basis.
At first tho figures are modeled nude,
and full regard is paid to all the an?
atomical details. The drapery is added
afterward, from studies arranged on
When the model is finished according
to the taste of the sculptor n second
one is made of the exact size intended
for the final piece of work. Where tho
statue is to be made of bronze the full
sized model is an absolute necessity, .is
the casting in bronze is made from the
model, and it reproduces the latter in
every detail. Where the statue is to
be of marble the final model need notf
necessarily be full size, and many,
sculptors prefer working from small,
highly-finished models. Unsallv, how
over, a full-sized model is made in ela}'.
The sculptor can still alter or modify
his original design, bringing certain
features into greater promineuce, sub?
duing others. When the model is fin?
ished a cast of it is taken in plaster,
and this latter is used as the final
model, and with it as a guide the block
of marble is carved by skilled work?
men. This is an art which has bc?r.
carried to a high degree of perfection
in Italy, and the workmen o> Carrara
are famous. The sculptor makes his
model in clay and takes a/plnstcr cast,
and then sends it to the/works in Car?
rara, where it is chiseled and then re?
turned to him fcr the final touches.
After the choice of.a suitable block
of stone, a most important piece of
work has to be done, namely, the mark?
ing cf certain poin^ on the plaster cast
and the determnuation of similar points
in the marblo? Various methods and
instruments have been recommended
for this purpose. In practice a divided
frame is used, and the exact distance
. of certain marked points on the plaster
cast is accurately measured. Fixed
points on the stone are marked, and
from these the other points arc meas?
ured with instruments, and the depth
to which the stone must be cut or
drilled Is determined with great ac?
curacy. In this Way all prominent
points arc marked out, and holes are
drilled to tho required depth and the
intervening marble chiseled away, at
first roughly, then with greater and
greater care, till the marble begins to
assume its finished shape. In the
larger sculpture wc/rks one man docs
the marking, another the rough chisel?
ing, another the fine work. Finally a
stage is reached when it again passes
into the hands of the sculptor himself,
aud he it is who ]?uts the lines of genius
rnto it with his fine instruments. Al?
though the workers in Carrara are
clever, they soVlom are gifted enough
to supply the "finishing touches which
give the characteristics of the great
eculptors themselves.?X. Y. Tribune.
Strange'Obstinacy of a Mexican.
I One everrlng as the express train of the
Mexican Central was approaching Mex?
ico city,the engineer observed an Indian
shepherd, lying on the track. The en?
gineer whistled five or six times, but
the i6on would not get up. and it was
impossible to stop the engine in time.
TJie pilot of the locomotive struck the
head of the prostrate man and rolled
him down an embankment. When the
Irate was stopped and the conductor
iir.d some of the passengers alighted to
look to the man, it was found that,
though he had suffered a rather severe
scalp wound, he was not dangerously
injured, lie was able to sit up while
his head was bound with his wife's
retozo. Some of thepassengers wanted
to bring in the Indian to be attended to
at one of the police stations of the city,
but he absolutely refused, and getting
up he walked without difficulty with
his wife to a neighboring hacienda,
where he is employed. He would give
no explanation as to why he had re?
fused to move off the track when he
heard the train approaching'.?Mexican
