"Great Bronze Cup - The Basketball Player - signed Milo"
“The Basketball Player“ is a perfect image of an acting basketball player, seconds before he takes a great shoot. The famous Portuguese artist Milo is the creator of this sportive bronze cup, with which he showcases his talent and craftsmanship as a great sculptor. The result is this detailed and filigree bronze sports trophy, which shows very realistically a player with his clothes and basketball. The highlight of this figure is the expression of the athlete’s face, which shows the concentration in which he plays the game. Even the muscles are designedin true detail; they are in a moment of high effort. At this stunning sportive sculpture all details create a great image of a young basketball player, who is a man of boundless ambition. To stage the figure perfectly, Milo decided to set it on a cylindrical shaped plinth of green marble. The cup consists of 100% finest bronze and has a signature of Milo at the small bronze plate on which the athlete stands.
As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is hand-cast in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.

The sculptor Milo was born on June 12, 1955 in Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal. His father worked as a well-known art dealer and his mother was a loving housewife. Because of his father’s profession, Milo came into contact with art early. He developed a passion for this subject and studied sculpture and art at the University of Lisbon. During his studies he began to create animal and nude figures, while he was interested in Modern Art. Today he works as a freelance artist throughout Europe and makes a high number of Modern Art sculptures, such as this sports trophy “The Basketball Player”. Basketball is a popular team sport, which is played in a sports hall. Two teams of five players each compete for the ball, which they try to shoot in the opposite basket, fixed 3.05 meters in height. There are up to seven substitutes for each team. When one team makes a successful shot, it gets in relation to the distance either two or three points. The team who has more points at the end of the game will be the winner. The most famous basketball league is the NBA (National Basketball Association), in the United States of America. It was founded in 1949 as the successor of the Basketball Association of America. Bob Davies and George Mikan were the most famous players in the 1940s, whereas Dirk Nowitzki is one of the greatest athletes nowadays. The German basketball player has been playing in the NBA since 1998 and is member of the Dallas Mavericks. The latest match he won together with his team, the “Mavs”, were the NBA finals in 2011. With this victory he is the first German basketball player ever, who won the NBA playoffs.
