This large limited edition bronze sculpture captures the character of the shooting man’s favourite companion—his Labrador. International sculptor Michael Simpson’s works are distinguished by their elegant, simple style, while retaining the movement and dynamics of the living creature—and here he has imbued his subject with that indefinable element which makes this a real and faithful Labrador, and no ordinary dog but a working gun dog at that.
All the Labrador characteristics seem to be embodied here: the kindness, loyalty, obedience, gentle nature and willingness to please. Labradors are the gentlemanly butlers of the shooting field. And whenever you enter the room this one catches your eye, ready to respond to a call or even just a sign. It is remarkable. There can be no doubt that this bronze will captivate any shooting man, reminding him of his shooting, and his canine companion, long after the season ends.
At 205mm tall (slightly more than 8in) and weighing 2.7kg, this lovely bronze is substantial enough to catch the eye in even a large room. It looks superb as the centrepiece on a dining room table, or spotlit on a plinth—and it is of course the perfect bronze for the study or office of any sporting man or woman. It is in a limited edition of 75 and arrives in a presentation box.
