Leopard Ambush - 2016
Hamish Mackie’s bronze Leopard sculptures are an extraordinary collection of Big Cat studies. One of the African Big Five game animals, Hamish was lucky enough to observe them at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.
Hamish has sculpted the Leopard in a series of characteristic poses, which show the power, stealth and agility of this magnificent animal.
Leopard Ambush is a bronze Leopard sculpture showing a leopard about to pounce on its prey. Hamish’s attention to the anatomical detail really gives a dynamic quality to this dramatic sculpture.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
This Leopard was commissioned by an interior designer for a niche in the corridor of a London house. The sculpture is intended to capture a moment when the Leopard is pouncing at you as you walk past.
