WHALE AND CALF SCULPTURE

Creating the Humpback Whales sculpture was about representing the strong bond between the mother whale and the calf, which exists for many years as the calf grows up. I’m fascinated by the animal world and the complex and powerful emotional connections that can be found there.

I feel that if people can be inspired to love and admire these beautiful creatures, they will protect them and their habitats better. I also love the incredibly graceful movement of these huge animals through water, as they glide through our oceans.

This bronze Whale and Calf statue bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the Whale and Calf 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 remarkable Whale and Calf 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 Whale and Calf statue will go to the ‘David Shepherd Wildlife Trust’, a charity that fights for greater legal protection of endangered species.

The Whale and Calf is a limited edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original sculpture, taken from a mould.

This statue is presented on an integrated base, made of Bronze Resin or Foundry Bronze depending on which material you choose. It can be additionally mounted on a wood, slate or granite base if requested.

How The Sculpture Was Made

The Whale and Calf 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.
