Roe Buck Fawn Standing - 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 Fawn Standing sculpture shows a young male Roe Deer, antlers yet to develop, with his ears pricked and long coltish legs.
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.
