FAWN IN SHELL SCULPTURE

There is nothing more precious than a little baby fawn curled up in the woods or the long grass, left safe by its mother as she goes out to feed. This sculpture is so small but is actually still one of my favorites.

For me it captures the real beauty and innocence of nature and how much care we need to take of this fragile world. This is the shell variant, which was how the fawn was originally designed – adds something curious and unusual, yet the contrasting shape is still complementary, allowing the fawn to nestle comfortably within. The shell represents the viewers desire to protect this innocent young creature.

This bronze Fawn in Shell bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the fawn in shell sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

10% of the proceeds from this bronze wildlife sculpture support the David Shepherd Wildlife Trust animal charity.

Which Material to Choose

Bronze Resin – bronze metal powder is mixed with a resin to create the appearance of foundry bronze metal, but is more affordable and lightweight.

Foundry Bronze  – refers to the poured molten metal that is cast solid or hollow, depending on size, at a bronze foundry (using the traditional lost wax process). It is more robust and will appreciate in value.

Sculpture Description, Bases & Fixings

This beautiful Fawn in Shell statue is sculpted by artist Tanya Russell, who is well known for her life-like wildlife and animal sculptures. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Fawn statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.

The Fawn is an open edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original bronze sculpture from a mould.

If you would like this statue to be mounted on a stone or wooden base, please contact me for a quote.

How The Sculpture Was Made

The Fawn sculpture was modelled in wax, without the need for a backiron or armature for support due to its small size. After the statue was finished a rubber mould was taken, with ‘keys’ placed in the rubber to ensure proper positioning. Then a shell of fibreglass was applied, to protect the mould and support it during the casting process.
