STANDING KING CHARLES CAVALIER SPANIEL SCULPTURE
“This Standing Cavalier King Charles Spaniel sculpture was modelled on Martha, an alert and energetic younger spaniel, who enjoyed chasing balls.
Martha was commissioned in 2016 along with her companion Norah, also a King Charles Spaniel. I wanted to show Martha’s youthful lines and wonderful breeding with a classic standing pose. She stands next to Norah, contrasting with Norah’s softer lying pose with her own alert watchfulness.”
This bronze cavalier king charles spaniel statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Sitting Cavalier King Charles Spaniel sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
10% of the proceeds from this bronze dog sculpture support ‘The Dogs 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
Suitable for outdoor display as a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel garden ornament or king charles spaniel memorial statue.
This statue is provided with screw-in threaded rods for added stability in soft ground, which also allow you to bolt it onto, or glue it into, hard surfaces.

Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Standing Cavalier King Charles Spaniel statue will go to the ‘Dogs Trust’, a charity that provides sanctuary and rehoming services for dogs in the UK and also lobbies for welfare policy changes all over the world.
The Standing Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay king charles spaniel sculpture, taken from a mould. Your bronze dog sculpture can be cast in Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze metal depending on which material you prefer.
How The Sculpture Was Made
I visited Martha and took lots of photographs of her alone and with Norah, 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 Martha in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Martha 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.

“I am emailing to say how delighted I am with the stunning sculpture Charles kindly delivered to me yesterday evening. The actual sculpture with its fine and sensitive details are a tribute to your very talented skills. I am truly in awe of your work!
The foundry cast and produced a fine piece. My “girls” Liora and Shira have welcomed Martha in to our family!”
“We are really delighted with them both and at the moment they have pride of place in our hallway. We can hardly bare to put them outside!
Thank you so much for your attention to detail – the likeness and character in both cases is remarkable. You are such a talented sculptor and we are two very grateful clients.”
