Leopard Stalking Life size - 2012
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.
Hamish’s life size Leopard Stalking is evocative of wildlife documentaries we’ve all seen which show this Big Cat stalking its prey. Slinking close to the ground, he moves noiselessly along a rocky outcrop.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
Charlie Mayhew MBE, Chief Executive of Tusk Trust said in my 2016 catalogue, “Hamish Mackie’s signature style captures the raw dynamism and intense power of wild animals. His sculptures are vividly tactile, a quality that invites you to engage and connect with the animal he has brought to life.”
