Although Rodin never casted bronze on his own - he hired specialists to do it for him - CooperToons has no such luxury. If he wants a bronze statue, he as to cast the friggin' statue himself.
This is obviously not a bronze statue but is the wax model - and so in some ways it's actually the original sculpture. But for some reason people always count the bronze as the actual statue.
On the other hand, maybe we should count the clay models the original. But for some reason, it's the bronze that counts.
