Each sculpture is an original, one of a kind work-of-art! Most of Malara's sculptures are three dimensional, actual size, and exact in every detail to each subject! In the creation of the displayed pieces, Malara utilized his proprietary blend mixtures. His exclusive casting process is combined with special finishing techniques. Malara's process also utilizes a one time mold per work, with no master mold. Malara's sculptures can NEVER be duplicated. Malara's subjects look exactly as the art reveals and not as other artists would "perceive" their subjects to look. Malara's work is precise to the fingerprints which positively identifies each subject.
MEANINGFUL & PERSONALIZED
Malara's work clearly defines with profound exactness the true essence of a person. Some of Malara's sculptures also remarkably include strands of the actual hair of his subjects -- (DNA) which is lifted at times through his process (usually from the back of a subject's hand or lower wrist area.) Those hair strands are somtimes restored into the exact same spot -- on the finished sculpture -- as they previously were on the subject!
His work is as close to the "real thing" as humanly possible.
Malara's degree of artistic casting, sculpting and painting abilities are unsurpassed. He has created countless special effects -- hand's sculpted holding objects -- loved ones holding hands (up to 10 at one time!) -- stone body silhouettes -- 3 dimensional full heads with glass eyes! Malara's special techniques, materials and talent allow him to also create sculptures of subjects with uncontrollable or rapid hand movement like those with Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson's disease, nervous conditions, or the rapid movements of a new born baby! Malara holds the world record for creating his youngest daughters hand and foot sculptures at only 45 minutes old! Melissa will soon be 28 years old -- and yes -- the 45 minute old sculptures include -- in complete detail -- fingerprints and footprints -- identifying her as much today as they did that very first day!

COMPLETE OFFICAL DOCUMENTATION
In most cases Malara has PALM and/or FINGERPRINTED "celebrity" subjects! In addition, those subjects also signed a "Release Form" and/or an "Affidavit of Authenticity & Official Authorization Form" in front of additional signed witnesses! Supplementing all of that, some of the subject's were video-taped during the molding process and/or pictures were taken! This is Malara's method of "proof of subject" -- through "Complete Official Documentation!"
Malara's sculptures are more than memorabilia...they are created in the spirit of Historical Preservation and undoubtedly will increase in value exponentially in years to come! Furthermore, all Celebrity Sculptures were created with each subject's knowledge, approval and full participation.
