A portrait is the term mostly used for the representation of the likeness of a person, animal or scene created using paint, photography, sculpture, or other artistic mediums. In a portrait of a person the facial expression is often the predominant subject of the image.
Various types of metals can be used in sculptural art, with bronze being the most popular alloy metal for casting. Durable and hard, yet malleable and fairly easy to bend or hammer into desired shapes, metal can also be melted and molded during the casting process.

Non-ferrous metals include aluminum, alloys, bronze, stainless steel, copper. Non-ferrous metals have been used in numerous practical and artistic applications since the beginning of civilization.
Contemporary art encompasses the art of today, produced by living artists. The art of today benefits from all the previous art movements in history as artists work in a wide array of mediums, formats, and styles, while transgressing art forms: music, architecture, video, performance art, living installations, technology.
