Roe Buck - 2015 SOLD OUT
Quick and graceful, the Roe Deer lives in woodland and is mostly active at dawn and dusk. Small and shy, Roe Deer are not as sociable as other breeds, living in small groups. They are elegant nimble creatures, and when alarmed, will flee with a bounding gait.
Hamish Mackie has created a series of bronze Roe Deer sculptures in a variety of characteristic poses. Placed alone or grouped together in a woodland garden, they provide a charming focal point.
Hamish’s bronze Roe Buck sculpture shows a handsome male deer, turning his head, watchful for any danger. His proud head and fine antlers are characteristic of this attractive animal, as are his broad rump and powerful hind quarters.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
These four sculptures: Roe Buck 2015, Roe Buck Fawn Standing 2015, Roe Doe 2015 and Roe Doe Fawn Sitting, were all sculpted together in my studio, using photographic research and measurements I have taken over the years. My intention was they were installed together as a family group. Compositionally, they can be moved around to fit the environment in which they are set. More recently I has started to use trail cameras to capture research shots of wildlife. This allows me to witness moments that would rarely be seen by the human eye.
