In the past, copper was mixed and melted with gold and silver, despite which art continued to be valued more; now it is not certain whether the art or the material has deteriorated and it is strange that, when the prices of works have risen to infinity, the dignity of art has disappeared. Indeed, as in all things, the love of profit is what has begun to be cultivated, when before the love of glory used to prevail - that is why artistic activity was even ascribed to the occupation of gods, when the heroes of the families also sought glory in this way. Today, the process of casting the prized bronze is so lost that for a long time not even chance has been able to replace art in this domain.
