Like much of African wildlife, warthogs have a busy existence as they grapple with the two main aspects of bush survival: eating and not being eaten. A wild warthog physically and aesthetically is a completely different animal to a zoo animal, which doesn’t have to be fit and alert for survival.

Hamish’s limited edition bronze Warthog sculpture shows a male warthog in motion, running at speed. This dynamic study of a wild pig - with the curved tusks, tufted tail and quick feet that make this hog so distinctive - is crafted with Hamish’s usual anatomical accuracy.

Warthogs are real characters, they are amusing to watch and fun to sculpt. Warthog 2016 was made in Africa at Lewa Conservancy in Kenya from my travelling studio box. It was made with plasticine and then later finished off in my studio at home in Oxfordshire, before going to the foundry to be cast.
