This newly released animal sculpture in bronze depicts the symbiotic relationship between hippo and egret. The egret helps the hippo by eating parasites and insects which irritate the Hippo, while the egret benefits from an easy meal. Anyone who has travelled in Africa will instantly recognise this iconic symbol of the African plains. This stunning new animal sculpture in bronze would provide a spectacular centrepiece in any home. Released in a strictly limited edition of just nine pieces.
Bronze Animal Sculpture
Limited edition of 9
Traditional bronze casting is a highly skilled and time consuming process. First Nick meticulously sculpts the animal in clay. A wax model is produced from the original sculpture and used to create a mould. A new wax model is required for each sculpture in the edition, as the wax is burned away in the casting process. Nick checks and refines each wax model personally. Large sculptures must be cast in sections and welded together. Once cast, the piece must be finished and patinated. Whilst expensive, bronze casting produces animal sculptures of wonderful depth and detail. These are true investment pieces to treasure and pass down through the generations.
