Hare Head Life Size - 2015 SOLD OUT
A recurring theme in Hamish Mackie’s work, the Hare is one of his favourite animals. He returns to the subject occasionally and each time he creates a Hare sculpture it is with a fresh eye.
“I have sculpted hares over the years, as a benchmark to see how my style is changing.” (HM)
Beloved of children’s stories and Aesop’s Fables, the Hare is a creature long celebrated in literature, art and folklore.
Hamish Mackie’s bronze Hare Head is a life-size sculpture. The hare’s head seems to evolve from its shoulders to the tips of its long upright ears. Available in limited edition, this bronze Hare sculpture is a charming piece which will delight wildlife lovers.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
Hare Head Life Size was made at the same time as Hare Turning. When sculpting, it is often easier to immerse yourself in the subject, and sometimes sculpting more than one becomes key to giving justice to the study.
