Roe Buck Head - 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.
His bronze Roe Buck Head sculpture shows the short upright antlers and fine features of the male Roe Deer. The detail of the antlers, alert ears and big eyes, are anatomically true, but there is also undeniably a proud spirit in this piece.
THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING
I used a real scull as the armature for this head study, and then set about reconstructing the head around it, a true lesson in anatomy!
