Lead

Lead has been used for sculpture of various sorts around the ancient world. In China lead has been used in statuettes and relief sculptures. Ancient Greeks produced flat votive figures in cast lead, popular at the ancient sanctuaries of Laconia dedicated to Artemis and the Romans created lead sarcophagi sculpted with relief forms that were unique to the Eastern Mediterranean. Led seals are also popular from Byzantium.
