“Camels are great characters to sculpt. Their faces are very expressive, their bodies lean and muscular.” (HM)
Like all Hamish’s wildlife sculptures, his bronze Camel sculptures were observed from life and created with a close understanding of the animal’s anatomy and form. Part of the appeal of Hamish Mackie’s sculptures is that the artist captures the real physicality of his subjects. He imbues a foundation of anatomical correctness with a character and energy which bring his sculptures to life.
Hamish’s arresting bronze life size Camel sculpture makes quite an impact. It is easy to see why they are called the ships of the desert. Hamish’s understanding of the animal’s anatomy is particularly evident in this large, life size sculpture and is defined and emphasised by the textural quality of this piece. It would make a spectacular focal point to any outdoor space. Available in a limited edition of 9.
