WALKING ENGLISH SETTER SCULPTURE
“This English Setter sculpture was modelled on Archie. I never had the privilege of meeting Archie. I heard that he went everywhere with the family and was particularly good with the children. Archie loved his birthday celebrations and was a gentle giant who is much missed.
English Setters have a wonderful shape and beautiful coat. I chose this pose with the owner for its elegance and poise. We selected an old photo memory of Archie walking through water, which captured his gentle, beautiful presence.”
This bronze english setter statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Walking English Setter 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 english setter garden ornament or english setter memorial statue.
This statue is mounted on a steel subframe for additional stability, which you can place into a shallow hole in the ground and then bury with your chosen covering of turf, soil or gravel. The sculpture is mounted a small distance above the frame on rods, to allow turf to grow after it is laid over the subframe. You can attach security chain to the subframe, but if particularly concerned about security you can protect the mounting rods that attach the sculpture to the subframe from being cut by using poured concrete. If you are mounting the sculpture on a pre-existing hard surface, please tell us and we will provide a casting that is not mounted on a subframe.
This noble lifesized english setter statue is sculpted by the artist Tanya Russell, who is the UK’s pre-eminent dog sculptor. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 10% of all proceeds from the Walking English Setter 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 Walking English Setter is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original clay english setter dog 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 sculpted Archie using a large number of photographs sent from his owner in London. They kindly showed me what they loved about their handsome boy, and took some measurements for me. After that, with his owners, I decided which pose would suit Archie best, then proceeded to model him in clay.
Once I’d sculpted Archie 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.
