Size: 4 - 6cm high to the ears
This is a wonderful bronze sculpture of a Warthog Family (1"-2 1/4" high to the ears) by Jonathan Sanders and it was carefully hand cast by Nelson & Forbes in an English foundry, in an edition of just 250 castings. It is composed of five separate warthogs, which can be arranged as you wish.
The Warthog Family is presented in a high quality hand made English 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. Each family is cast individually by hand and then each of the five moulds are destroyed. This means that each family is utterly original and so will be very slightly different to the last.
Jonathan has spent many years studying the flora and fauna of Africa up close and he was particularly keen to create a family of warthogs. "They just seem to own the track when they trot down it" he says, "I have endevoured to capture that self contained assuredness whilst maintaining the fondness I feel when I watch them."
