What To Consider When Placing A Statue

There are some pretty impressive statues around the world, which have been built and erected by the most caring of artists for the needs of the neighbourhood within which they live. Whether they formally recognize a famous sportsperson or politician of the ages, they are indeed historical structures that make for solid eye candy of sorts. But have you ever stopped to think about what goes into making such things? Well, perhaps now is the time to do so because you might be nearing the time when you will need or want to get one for whatever you might want or need it for. 

Size 

If you are going to want something big or small, this is going to have to be communicated to the people in line to do the designs for headstones and monuments. They will be trained monumental masons and should know exactly what they are talking about and when the job starts, they must be able to keep you updated on their plans and ambition. They would have done this before and will be doing it again plenty more in their future. So rely on their expertise, and trust that they have your best interest at heart and will be able to come up with the best pattern for you and your monument or statue. 

Colour 

While there is not a lot of variations for this, you can get different hues here and there. From a lighter hue to something a bit darker, the professionals again can advise you what direction to go with this. The material isn’t always rock, and there are other materials that will need to be considered as well. Chat to the maker and the designer, ascertaining what combinations are going to work the best. They might have examples on record on their computer or even physical representations on their grounds to show you. This will really help you visualize things. 

Placement 

While you might have one idea in mind as to where you are eventually going to place this monument, the guys building the thing could tell you about an alternative that actually would work much better. This will need careful thought, in conjunction with all and sundry concerned. So take you time and perhaps move it around a bit to see what works better. Keep in mind the amount of exposure it is going to get to the sun or rain or wind or other greater elements. 

Wording 

Will the monument have writing on it? What will the writing say and will it be placed directly on the item or glued with a sign or something else. This is also something you are going to have to chat to them about. If they can’t help you with this, then ask why they can’t and ensure that you are willing to meet each other halfway. Perhaps you might have to pay a bit more for this sort of service. If this is the case, you would do well to understand the size of that cost before it comes along.
