RUNNING CHEETAH SCULPTURE
The Running Cheetah sculpture was an attempt to capture that incredible power, energy and beauty that a running cheetah has. I loved making this sculpture and enjoyed using forms and mark making to create dynamism in the sculpture.
This bronze Running Cheetah statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Cheetah 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 dynamic bronze Cheetah 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 Cheetah statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.
The cheetah 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
In this case, I researched lots of source material, working from lots of photographs of cranes in a variety of poses and modelling it in clay. The Sitting Pig sculpture was modelled in clay, over a steel and aluminium armature for support.
Once I’d sculpted the pig statue 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.

“It arrived very promptly this morning and really is utterly wonderful, I need to find a special place for it where it is on its own with out other items around it, as it such an eye catching piece.
What a talent Tanya has.”
“Many thanks for this which we love. She sits in pride of place on a glass topped table in the front window of the sitting room. She has been named “Chinga” after the first cheetah rescued by what went on to become the Africa Foundation.”
