Small Bronze of a Salmon Jumping
By Michael Simpson
Limited Edition numbered 2/150
5cm H, 6.5cm W, 3cm D.
This elegant Salmon is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina. Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
Presented beautifully in a printed box containing a signed certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed.
Returning to the very river in which they were born, these Salmon are battling the flow following their sense of smell upstream. It is believed this sense of smell, which is exceptional, assists this feat of navigation from the open seas to the home river. Michael Simpson’s bronze shows the energy needed to made this epic journey.
