I’ve been performing commissions for many years, and occasionally I have an opportunity to sculpt something entirely for myself. I’d previously modelled a leaping leopard and had loved sculpting these beautiful predators. I wanted to model a portrait only, to capture the stunning lines of the leopard’s neck and head, and to develop my personal artistic style. I particularly pushed the darks and rough unexpected planes, to create marks that were unnatural, yet appropriate.

This bronze Leopard Portrait statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Leopard 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, life-like bronze Leopard Portrait 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 Leopard Portrait 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 Leopard Portrait 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 Leopard Portrait sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. 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.

Client Testimonials

Wow, wow, wow!!!! We’ve just unboxed our leopard and it’s made me cry. Strong, but gentle and VERY tactile.

When gazing at it head on it appears to stare right back at you and into your soul – it’s almost alive.

We love the loose style and can feel the emotion that has gone into creating it. Beautiful. We are absolutely delighted. Thank you so much … And for packing it so carefully.

Stella (Buyer).
