LABRADOR PORTRAIT 3 SCULPTURE
“The Labrador Portrait 3 sculpture was modelled on Bonus, a wonderful labrador who lives in Sweden. His owners were keen to participate in the commission, and enjoyed receiving photos of my progress.
It was a shame I did not get to meet Bonus. But it was lovely to have dog sculpture commissioned in places like Sweden and Bonus’s family were happily very pleased with the sculpture.”
This bronze labrador statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Labrador Portrait 3 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.

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 4 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 4 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 Bonus 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 Bonus best, then proceeded to model him in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Bonus 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.
