    Hi rob,
    what a lovely bronze you have, and the time and effort it takes to sculpt them is not easy,
    I have done bronze from the lost wax process and know how long these take. Great subject and well designed, did it come from a pic or your own version ?, either way very well done, thanks for showing it.

    Hi Rob, yes i remember your wax model and now the final result, terrific, must admit the process took quite a while but i daresay because of the problem with the foundry, but the wait was worthwhile, whats on the cards for the next project or are you taking it easy for a while, regards dave
