Description

The Dolphin sculpture was based on a memory from my childhood. When I was young I saw dolphins in Nassau, where my parents were commissioned to do a sculpture during my apprenticeship. Then later, I was lucky enough to see them in Little Loch Broom in Scotland. Inspired by their play and their incredibly sculptural lines I created my Dolphin sculpture.

When I model animals I try where possible to find examples from life. I also use many, many photos showing the animal (and other animals of the breed or species). This helps me sculpt their anatomical features. I study the way that muscles and skin features interact or alter their shape, and their different poses and attitudes.

– Your dolphin sculpture raises money for wildlife conservation –

The Dolphin statue is part of my Charities Range, and 10% of the proceeds go to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. The wildlife conservation charity particularly focuses on Africa and Asia. It fights wildlife crime and protects natural areas. It also engages local communities in finding long-term, sustainable solutions to protect their native wildlife.

If you would like to commission a dolphin sculpture or a another animal statue, I have some information about bespoke sculptures and pricing on my commissions page.

Suitable for indoor display and sized for the window-sill or mantlepiece. The Dolphin sculpture is a perfect animal sculpture gift for a special occasion.
