These hares are made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The bronze is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina. The bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
Wild hares captured in bronze: Michael Simpson’s dramatic and delightful work of art, ‘Small Hares Boxing’, limited edition bronze
The sight of hares boxing, leaping in seeming abandon, is unforgettable, and this early morning spectacle is captured by international wildlife sculptor Michael Simpson in a series of spectacular bronzes.
He portrays the hares in mid-box, a moment in time during a performance not only dramatic but entirely natural, the hares rapt in their aerobatics in ‘Small Hares Boxing’. At only 7cm tall, it still magnetises all who see it.
Beautifully presented in a printed box containing a signed certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed
Dimensions: Width 9cm, weight 340g, edition of 250.
