The gift bust was made after Antonio Galli’s work dating from 1840 (part of the collection of the museum, marked Pl 021). We wanted to create a sculpture both representing Liszt and recalling an object of our permanent exhibition. The original bust is 15.75 inches high; we had to downsize it to about 4.72 inches, so copying Galli’s work with traditional procedures was not an option. Instead, we called for modern technology: two professors at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts, Ágnes Előd and István Labancz prepared a virtual 3D model. This was then printed at University of Art and Design Budapest with a 3D printer by Zsolt Ormándlaky and his colleagues. This prototype turned out to be perfect for duplication. We commissioned a Hungarian sculptor, Levente Leitner to make 250 copies. He used eco-friendly, high-solidity acrylate that is crash-proof and stable, but appropriate for homogenous white surfaces. The busts’ base has the logo of the Academy of Music, making them our own official gifts available at the shop.
