This captivating 2-D animation, combined with stop-motion, is not your everyday how-to video. The film artistically explains the “lost wax” technique, a simple bronze casting process applied here to a plaster replica of the original bronze statue of the Roman emperor Hadrian found in Tel-Shalem, Israel, dating to A.D. 117-138 . Filmmakers Renana Aldor and Kobi Vogman worked hand in hand with the curator and restoration department of the museum for the “Hadrian” exhibition in Jerusalem’s Israel Museum.
