Sleeping Dog – Bronze Sculpture


‘Sleeping Dog’ is a horizontally oriented sculpture. There are two faces on this forward-stepping figure so that a face is visible from either of the lengthwise views. In one expression the character is looking up like he has succeeded in sneaking over the sleeping dog; the other expresses a little more concern. It is only from the lower front side we see the two faces simultaneously. It suggests that the character is checking over his shoulders, looking from side to side.

Where and How it’s Made
The original sculpture of ‘Sleeping Dog’ is made in Chavant wax-based clay. A capture mold is made which destroys the original wax clay but allows for a wax casting, a secondary mold, and lost wax bronze casting. The casting was done at Burton Bronze Foundry, on Salt Spring Island BC.

This sculpture is foam and cloth wrapped and securely boxed for shipping. Open on a secure surface, taking care not to use a deep cutting blade.

Each sculpture comes with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
