“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 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 bronze Camel Sitting sculpture shows this dromedary in repose, his legs folded beneath him. He has the distinctive one hump and Hamish has captured his expressive face.
