Modelled on a Lohmann cockerel, Chicken Head 2017 was commissioned by a chicken breeder as a gift for a big European egg production company. Originally from Germany, the Lohmann Brown is a good-natured, reliable egg-layer and perhaps the breed we first think of when we imagine a farmyard chicken.

Hamish has captured the cockerel’s friendly, inquisitive character in this striking bronze chicken head sculpture, which has a rich warm patina, and would make the perfect gift for anyone who loves the countryside.


I really enjoyed having a Lohmann cockerel living in my studio for a week! He was a bumptious chap, strutting around, pecking at my equipment. By the end of the week we had become good friends and he would sit on my shoulder while I worked. Working from life allows you to get a feel for the subject’s character – in this case a plucky inquisitive bird which I hope I captured in my sculpture.
