The beautiful bronze Lying Malamute sculpture is a casting of an original sculpture. It is hand cast by a British foundry or resin caster and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. This is an original foundry or resin casting of the sculptor’s work that she has personally approved.

The inspiration behind the sculpture
My Lying Malamute was a commission of Tia, a retired show dog who won her class at Crufts. She was a beautiful, friendly girl whose tail never stopped wagging for thirteen years. When I met her, she was quite elderly, but enjoyed the companionship of another Malamute and loved having a stroke while she lay outside on the lawn.
How it was made
I drew on lots of photographs and video of Tia when sculpting my Lying Malamute sculpture. I took my own photos and measurement of her during a sitting, though she was quite elderly at the time. Once I agreed a pose and age to sculpt her, I modelled Tia in wax.
After I’d sculpted my Lying Malamute statue a rubber mould was taken.
She’s arrived, I’ve been waiting to move a bookcase for her to sit on. I’m very very pleased. She can keep an eye on me from the top of the stairs. Still making me smile.
