It's strictly a market thing...I am being told that smaller bronzes sell better...probably because they can sit on a desk, bookshelf, side table etc as opposed to a stand alone pedestal...also there is the multiplying aspect of (my costs + foundry) x 2 (gallery market up) putting the cost above the typical buyer....from a fine art point of view I agree with you.
