  'Exxon Tiger' Medallic Art                                                              



Sculpted by Commission for the Medallic Art Company, CT., Osmundsen's rendition of the
famous 'Exxon Tiger' was distributed throughout the United States to Exxon Executives and
Gas Stations and Vip's.




In Sculpting such a medallic work, a 12 inch plaster form is built upon with a modeling material, in this case wax. A single plaster mold is constructed over the model and form with a plaster slurry. The negative plaster mold goes to the Medallion Company who run a 3-D pantograph graph (not unlike a record player) over the large plaster model and duplicating the reduced image to Medal size. This becomes the steel die used to stamp each individual Bronze Medal.




The Engraved Back was personalized for the sculptor's own copy and was,
of course, not typical to those medallions distibuted.
