I have some new pictures of stage three in the process to make the final bronze work.  In this This one shows two supports that keep the wax in place as it cools off (they will be removed). 
stage three wax model.
stage each piece individually is made into a wax model.  The process continues from here with the prepared wax shell completely covered in layers of heat-resistant plaster which then will be placed in an oven. While heating in the oven the plaster dries and the wax melts and runs out. The plaster mold is then packed in sand, and molten bronze is poured through some holes, filling the space left by the wax.

Yay exciting!  So everything is on schedule and the next stage will begin!
