This captivating hedgehog with a hand painted ladybird is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown and red patina. The ladybird is delicately hand painted with artist's oils and sealed with a protective varnish. Then the whole piece is coated with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
Your bronze is beautifully presented in a printed box containing a certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed.
