    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.


    Metric –  H: 23 W: 40 D: 22 centimetres

    Imperial –  H: 9 W: 16 D: 9 inches

    As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.

    The beautiful bronze Running Cheetah 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.

    This casting is a perfect recreation of the original sculpture and bears the artist’s signature and its own unique edition number.

    The inspiration behind the sculpture
    The Running Cheetah sculpture was drawn from my interest in sculpting an animal in a running fluid motion, pushing the idea that I’d started exploring in my leaping spaniel to a more dynamic extreme. I wanted a quality of finish that would appeal to discerning wildlife art collectors, as the running Cheetah sculpture was intended for display in wildlife art galleries. I also wanted something whose texture was designed to look amazing in a lighter gold-coloured foundry bronze.
    How it was made
    I worked from many photos for this piece, and as this was a piece done for myself, I did not work with a commissioner to choose the pose. I relied upon the inspiration that most gripped me to find a pose that I felt would work balanced on a single paw and that could look fantastic from several dimensions. The cheetah was modelled in clay, over a steel and aluminium armature for support.

    Once I’d sculpted the Running Cheetah sculpture 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
    “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.”

    Amanda, Buyer

    “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.” 

    Gillian, Buyer
