As this sculpture is handmade the bronze colour may vary.
The beautiful bronze Chihuahua 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.
Foundry Bronze Edition: 50
Bronze Resin Edition: 50
The inspiration behind the sculpture
Dolly the Chihuahua was fun, vivacious and interested and I really enjoyed working with her. Dolly was extremely good while I took her measurements, and was far more confident than many of the big dogs I work with. She was commissioned in both Foundry Bronze and Bronze Resin.
How it was made
I visited Dolly and took lots of photographs of her in a variety of poses. I watched her expressions and mannerisms, and heard about the way she behaved at home with her family. After that, with her owners, I decided which pose would suit her best, then proceeded to model Dolly in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Dolly 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.
This sculpture is new and has not received any testimonials yet.
