LION AND DOVE SCULPTURE
The Lion and Dove sculpture was commissioned as an auction bid, at the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home 150th Gala Ball Auction, in order to raise money for the Home. The sculpture was for a couple’s golden wedding anniversary. He had a lion on his crest and he often called her his little dove. I wanted to show them going through life together, joined yet on their own journey.
This bronze Lion and Dove statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Lion and Dove 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 splendid bronze Lion and Dove 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 Lion and Dove statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.
The Lion and Dove 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 Lion and Dove 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.
