Roe Doe Fawn Sitting - 2015 SOLD OUT
Hamish’s bronze Roe Doe Fawn Sitting sculpture shows a young female Roe Deer, her legs folded beneath her as she waits. It is common for fawns to be left unattended, hidden in the grass when the mother goes off in search of food.
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.
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.
