Bronze is generally considered to be a very long lasting sculpture material, and has such a rich history of use. Of course extreme conditions can destroy anything and there are patinas, waxes, and synthetic coatings that many sculptors have used to protect the surface and give a beautiful finish.

Bronze is easy to drill with sharp metal bit and a little cutting oil, and that is the way I would do it.
