SITTING HARE SCULPTURE
I decided to do a sitting hare sculpture (finally!) after doing RHS shows for three years. I’d listened to all the lovely feedback from visitors and clients and they kept asking for hares. It’s a difficult sculpture to do – so many have been sculpted before. I wanted to strike the right balance with my own style, and the iconic shape of this beautiful creature. While I would love to sculpt a boxing hare, I wanted to begin with something simple and elegant. I wanted it to capture the hare in a moment of stillness, yet show its sharp awareness and potential for movement.
This bronze Sitting Hare bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the hare 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 pleasant Sitting Hare 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 Hare statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.
The Sitting Hare is an open edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original bronze sculpture from a mould.

How The Sculpture Was Made
The Sitting Hare 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.

“The hare is quite wonderful. We nearly went for the walking geese but might wait and give that to my old mother for Christmas.”
“It’s beautiful. Unfortunately the first one arrived (very promptly) but broken, despite what I would consider to be great packaging. I can only assume stupid behaviour in the parcel delivery chain! However the seller was brilliant, great communication and promptly sent another together with a return label to send back the broken one. Would use again.”
