Labrador brought to life in bronze: New limited edition sculpture by international sculptor Michael Simpson
So seemingly alive is this superb new limited edition bronze by international sculptor Michael Simpson that the character of the dog seems to shine through. That ‘let’s walk!’ look is all there, and yet, because this is a Labrador, the tone is one of gentle patience. He has even brought the lead—just to save you the trouble you understand, not to be pushy.
This is a delightful, restful, and thoroughly accurate bronze which catches the viewer’s eye and holds it, again and again. Michael Simpson’s sculptures are distinguished by their elegant, simple style, retaining the movement and dynamics of the living creature: and here he imbues his subject with that indefinable element which makes this a real Labrador. All the Labrador characteristics seem to be embodied here: the kindness, loyalty and willingness to please. There can be no doubt that this bronze will captivate any Labrador lover, a reminder of a canine companion and a figurative work of art.
At 120mm tall and weighing 630g, the bronze is substantial enough to catch the eye, but intimate enough to sit well on a desk, a side table or mantelpiece. It is of course the perfect bronze for the study or office of any Labrador-friendly man or woman. And of course this bronze art work makes a truly discerning gift.
Presented in a smart case with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Limited edition of 250.
