Size: 7w x 5h x 3cm
This Jonathan Sanders bronze sculpture of the baby of the kangaroo family, Joey, (3"w x 2"h x 1"d) was cast by hand in an English foundry, in an edition of just 250. It is presented in a high quality English hand sewn velvet pouch and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, Jonathan Sanders.
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 Seated Kangaroo, Lying Kangaroo and Boxing Kangaroos.
Jonathans paintings and sculpture of African wildlife have been sought after by collectors for many years. His study of this Australian marsupial was something he was keen to undertake and we are thrilled to have it as part of the Nelson and Forbes collection for 2012.
