This is a complete Misr Mini Medallions Set 1. I will not describe the seconds sets in detail, but you may expect any or all of the following issues: Small and/or large pinholes (air bubble holes) and/or missing parts, mostly around the edges and on the back of the casting(s); uneven thickness (one side thicker than the other); slight pigment stains; epoxy fixes; small areas of uncured resin (this is NOT "bad resin", but rather uncured resin that can be sanded/scraped off and filled with epoxy).
For the most part the front (=the horse) is just fine and the issues are very minor. The castings in the photo are NOT the ones you will receive - the images are samples only. The castings measure approximately 2.7 x 2.7 inches/68 x 68 mm.
About the set:
In February of 2020 I returned to Egypt for the first time in ten years. I spent eight glorious days photographing Arabian horses at some of the most well-known breedings farms in the world, and returned home with a treasure trove of 12,000 photos. The Misr Mini Medallions are inspired by these very photographs, and an hommage to the mezmerizing country, people, and horses of Egypt. "Misr" is the Arabic name for Egypt, simply meaning "country". Part of the tradition of this term in as a name for Egypt comes from the Islamic Quran. The term can also mean "fortress", or "castellated" which refers to the natural protective borders of Egypt which protected the country from invaders.
You will be receiving unpainted and unprepped sculptures, cast in white polyurethane resin. The sculptures are intended to be prepped and primered (instructions can be found here) and painted it in your choice of color and medium. Please be aware that the sculptures should be kept out of daylight until such a time that it can be painted as PU resin is sensitive to UV light and will go yellow if exposed to it for too long.
