This is the natural color of raw bronze. I think it is really beautiful, but unfortunately, it does not maintain the delicate soft lustre for long. It soon darkens and 'tarnishes', eventually turning green from the copper content in the metal. The patina helps seal and protect the surface, and a final coat of wax ensures a long life for an outdoor installation.
