"Wild boar prefer to spend most of the day hiding in thick conifers, making them a hard subject to photograph – but I regularly heard and had fleeting glimpses of the thorough the trees. On one day a family of four bolted from under a low canopy no more than a few meters in front of me. I’m not sure who was more surprised! Spending time in their habitat is a valuable learning experience reading their ways by different spore. It required me to tune into my sixth sense. In one area, which had been partly forested, the tree stumps had become perfect itching posts – inspirational!" (HM)

Hamish has created a series of bronze Wild Boar sculptures in a variety of characteristic poses.

Wild Boar Itch is a delightful portrayal of a wild pig scratching its side on a tree stump. It is available in a limited edition of 12.
