VIZSLA LYING ON ITS BACK SCULPTURE
“This Vizsla statue was a commission of a really special girl called Poppy. She had very sadly passed on just before the sculpture was commissioned, so I never got to meet her, but I heard a lot about her from her mum and had a lot of photographs. She had such a sweet face and obviously was devoted to her family. Apparently she used to spend a lot of time lying on her back like the sculpture, on the grass next to where her mum was doing her gardening. They are planning on putting the sculpture in her favourite spot in the garden, so that they can have her with them always.”
This bronze vizsla statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Vizsla Lying on its Back 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.

How The Sculpture Was Made
After the Lying Vizsla 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.
