The 8" size has soft metal arms that bend and cut to fit art objects. - The top and bottom bars are made of 1/16” softened metal. The upright is made of 1/8” metal and would usually need pliers to bend. They are mounted in .5”H acrylic, either clear or semi flat black. The 12" size is not softened and the upright is 1/4" and the crossbars are 1/8". The added bottom cross bar can be used to help float an object off of the base, help keep the bottom of an object from moving out, or just to increase stability. They are not glued into the base (some are in tighter then others), so height adjustments can be made by carefully removing them and cutting them down. The post of the larger one would need a hack saw or bolt cutters to cut. Also, it may be easier in some instances to work with the armature when it is not in the base. The armature may need to be re-painted if the paint comes off when bending and handling. *Note: Avoid putting pressure on soldered joints when bending.
Armature holders, can be used for displaying and holding a variety of artifacts and figurines like Egyptian Ushabtis, Olmec masks, small Bi, Coreform glass, small bronzes, Roman glass, Greek bronze figurines, Faience glass, Terracotta figures, Hellenistic art, Mycenaean figures or blades, Byzantine crosses, small Mezcala figures and small masks, Colima artifacts, Mayan gold figures, small masks, Aztec gold and artifacts, Chavin art, Moche figures, Quimbaya gold artifacts, Pre Columbian Celts, gold figures, and small jade masks, Cycladic figurines, small Inuit figures, Indian arrowheads, Chinese Tang, Ming, Ching dynasty art and jade Chinese Bi's, small African masks, Nordic artifacts, Japanese Tsubas, and artifacts, and small collectible dolls.
Mounting art work can increase its value and make it more presentable to the viewer.
