The Hummingbird sculpture was commissioned by a US developer, as one of two sculptures to be placed outside their building in Seattle. It was intended to compliment a large wall painting of cherry blossom, and the original Foundry Bronze Hummingbird was a bronze colour feeding from bright pink flowers.
This sculpture was a real joy to make, Hummingbirds are such beautiful creatures and I loved researching them and choosing the pose to compliment their delicacy and their dynamism.
This bronze Hummingbird statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Hummingbird 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 colourful bronze Hummingbird 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 Hummingbird statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.
Suitable for outdoor display as a garden or park ornament, or a statement piece featured on a fireplace.
The Hummingbird is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original sculpture, taken from a mould.
This statue is presented on an integrated base, made of Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze depending on which material you choose. It can be additionally mounted on a wood, slate or granite base if requested.
How The Sculpture Was Made
The Hummingbird sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the Hummingbird 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.
