Inspired by the prehistoric wall paintings in the Hall of the Bulls at the Lascaux caves in the Dordogne, Hamish has sculpted this bronze wall hanging Bull Relief. Resonant of the great aurochs depicted 17,000 years ago by Stone Age man, Hamish’s bull reminds us that man has always been moved to create art depicting the animals around us.
Cattle have always been a favourite subject of Hamish’s and we can clearly see similarities with his recent White Park Bull sculptures, to which the ancient aurochs are related. This wall hanging asks us to question whether it is an antiquity or a contemporary comment on the permanence of art. Supplied with hanging brackets, it would make a quirky statement in a modern interior or an unexpected feature on an outside wall.
