LABRADOR PORTRAIT 2 SCULPTURE
“The Labrador Portrait 2 sculpture was modelled on a beautiful lab, Prince, who’d sadly passed away prior to the commission.
Prince was commissioned in 2016 and I worked from his owner’s favourite photographs. He was a very handsome boy, and it was a challenge to capture his spirit and manner, but I really enjoyed sculpting him.”
This bronze labrador statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Labrador Portrait 2 sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of the proceeds from this bronze dog sculpture support ‘The Dogs 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
Suitable for indoor display or outdoor display as a labrador ornament or bronze labrador gift.
This sculpture is mounted on a wood base in Bronze Resin, and a black granite base in Foundry Bronze metal. If you would like this statue to be mounted on an alternative stone or wooden base, please contact me for a quote.

This table-sized labrador statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is the UK’s pre-eminent dog sculptor. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Labrador Portrait 2 statue will go to the ‘Dogs Trust’, a charity that provides sanctuary and rehoming services for dogs in the UK and also lobbies for welfare policy changes all over the world.
The Labrador Portrait 2 is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay labrador sculpture, taken from a mould. Your bronze dog sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.
How The Sculpture Was Made
I sculpted Prince using photographs sent from his owner. They kindly showed me what they loved about their handsome boy, and took some measurements for me. After that, with his owners, I decided which pose would suit Prince best, then proceeded to model him in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Prince 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.

If you are an international buyer, you may need to pay local customs duties or taxes when importing a sculpture into your country. This most often applies to more valuable sculptures. Your local customs and taxes are not prepaid for you. If you contact us we can try to estimate them for you.
Sculpture that is broken in transit to you may be returned, and a replacement sculpture will be sent to you, at no further cost. If no replacement is available, we will cast a new one for you, or offer you a refund.
“Thank you so much, you have captured him beautifully.”
“Sorry for the delay in thanking you for the fabulous labrador head. It is just right. I want to give it earlier than my husband’s birthday but I will hold fire for as long as possible! It is lovely.”
“My lab is Sooty, I searched many images and clearly prince had a soul mate.”
