Mother: 19w x 11h x 8d cm
This Jonathan Sanders bronze sculpture 'Elephant Mother and Baby' (Mother 8"w x 4"h x 3"d) was carefully hand cast by Nelson & Forbes in an English foundry, in an edition of just 250. It is presented in a high quality English hand made gift box and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, Jonathan Sanders. Please note that this sculpture qualifies for free shipping.
The certificate was individually printed by hand in Hampshire from an original copperplate engraving, before being signed by Jonathan Sanders. It bears the edition number of your sculpture and is your guarantee that this is an original foundry casting of the sculptor’s work that he has personally approved.
This bronze casting is a perfect recreation of the artist's original sculpture and took two weeks to create in a Birmingham foundry. It bears the artist's signature and its own unique edition number. As every piece is cast by hand and then the mould destroyed, each one is an original and so will be very slightly different to the last.
This piece is on the same scale as the Jonathan Sanders Rhinoceros Mother and Baby, Hippopotamus Mother and Baby and the baby elephants Follow Me and Tug of War.
