Are you looking for a special way to memorialize a loved one or capture a family memory? Bronze statues are a beautiful way to hold onto your memories forever.
When you capture a meaningful family memory in bronze, you are also passing it on to future generations. For years to come, new family members can appreciate your family’s history.
Let’s explore the significance of bronze statues and why they are perfect for capturing a story from your family.
Capturing a Story With Bronze Statues
Do you want a permanent way to remember your children in their early years? Maybe you want to honor a veteran in your family or pay tribute to your family’s western roots?
All families have distinct stories that make up the fabric of who they are. Whether centuries-old stories that were passed down through the generations, or more recent adventures with your immediate family, they can be memorialized in bronze.
Some common bronze statues that families choose to capture their memories or honor their loved ones include:
- Children playing
- A mountain man on horseback
- A Native American leader
- A saluting marine
- Animals that are meaningful to the family
If you are seeking to capture a specific event, you can also have a custom bronze statue created. Custom monuments are great for teaching generations to come about their heritage.
How Do You Choose the Perfect Memory to Capture in Bronze?
Your bronze statue will last forever, so you want it to represent a memory with deep meaning to you and your family. Choose a moment to capture that you would want your descendants to learn about when they visit the statue.
Take a few moments to think about your family’s defining moments. Does it date back generations, or are you forming a new family unit? What are your family’s core values that you want future generations to remember? What part of your heritage do you want to hold onto before it slips away into a history book?
Thinking about these things will help you select a memorial that represents your family’s values.
Symbolic Ways to Capture Your Family Memories in Bronze
You may prefer to choose a statue that is symbolic rather than one that depicts a specific event. For instance, if you come from a multi-generation family of ranchers, horse monuments are a great way to express your family’s history.
If you have multiple veterans in your family, an eagle statue can signify your family’s love and respect for your country. You can even replicate family pets in bronze.
Choosing a symbolic statue tells a story about your family while bringing pleasure to anyone who sees them.
Memorializing a Loved One in Bronze
Do you have a recently departed loved one that you want to memorialize? A bronze statue is a great way to bring family members the comfort they need, and preserve your loved one’s memory forever.
The most popular method for memorializing a loved one in bronze is to have a custom statue made in their likeness from a photo. You can even have the statue seated on a bronze bench so that family members can sit with them at any time.
However, you could also choose a bronze statue depicting something they loved, like a beautiful swan. Some families choose an angel statue to symbolize their family member watching over them.
Bronze statues that honor a lost loved one make touching additions to memorial gardens and are a beautiful way to remember those you have lost.
Bronze fountains make stunning memorials and add a unique focal point of your home.
As you can see, the options are endless. It just takes a little bit of creativity to decide how to best capture the essence of your family.
