This sculpture is in perfect condition. Bronze Dimensions with Marble Base: Height 10" X Width 12". This old elk takes a rest from the summers day heat in a cool grassy area. He lies down and reaches his massive head around his back to scratch and itch that has been bothering him. He is old and his coat is long and shaggy.He looks as if he has roamed the land for many years and knows the safe havens of his forest well. This is a touching bronze piece that depicts the old elk taking a rest yet you can sense the vibe of a struggle as with his age he cannot move like he used to.
His antlers are massive and definitely draw attention. This is an intricate and delicate piece consisting of many tedious man hours to create the cast. This sculpture was cast using the Lost Wax Method and has a gorgeous brown patina. It is mounted on beveled marble base and is signed by the artist. World famous sculptor "Milo" is the artistic partner of the Lynn Forbes School of Sculptureand is offering an exclusive signature in the wax of every piece of his items, which are Custom Cast with European Bronze Finery.In effect it makes EACH SCULPTURE an ORIGINAL since each one is different than the next (similar to a Limited Edition). Again, Miloour partnerIS THE ORIGINAL SCULPTOR of this incredible work of art. Milo was born in Paris in 1939; Milo lived most of his childhood in Andalusia, Spain.
Influenced by an artistic family background, he began sculpting at the age of seventeen. After apprenticing with several accomplished sculptors both in America and Spain, he began his own work focusing equally on steel and bronze. Horses and other animals were a natural direction of his work to follow. As a child he was surrounded by horses and witnessing the fighting bulls of Spain gave him an instinct for the inherent drama of these animals. Combining a special cement mixture with steel has allowed him the fluidity of metal with the timelessness of stone.
This process enables him to capture the essence of the animal's nature. The characteristic rough texture and movement of line make Milo work easily identifiable in both cement and bronze.
