Show Everlasting Love with a Timeless Bronze Sculpture from Nelson & Forbes
In this age of ‘disposable consumables’, it can be hard to find a Valentine’s gift that is as enduring love itself.
Nelson & Forbes Sculpture Company has the solution with a gorgeous bronze piece that is sure to melt hearts.
Endearingly titled ‘Follow Me’ (£185.00), the solid bronze sculpture which depicts two elephants comes in a limited edition of just 250 castings worldwide and has been designed exclusively for the company by renowned British sculptor Jonathan Sanders. Every Nelson & Forbes sculpture is made in the UK, and comes in a sumptuous gift box, handmade in the Midlands, complete with a certificate of authenticity, hand printed from a copper engraving plate and signed by the artist.
Jonathan Sanders has an enviable reputation as a sculptor of African wildlife. He has spent many years studying the form and movement of the animals he loves in their native Africa. His deep knowledge and understanding of his subjects allows him to exquisitely capture the animal’s raw spirit and to imbue each of his pieces with an emotion that means his art is highly sought after by animal lovers and collectors alike.
Every piece made by Nelson & Forbes is created in bronze using the ancient art of lost wax casting, which can be traced back over 6000 years and remains largely unchanged from its original form. It is the same process that was used to create famous sculptures across the globe including the Trafalgar Square Lions and the doors of the Bank of England. This process allows every intricate detail of a sculptor’s original but often fragile work to be perfectly recreated in a beautiful material and ensures that their sculpture will last a lifetime.
This sculpture is just one of 38 exclusive pieces in the Nelson & Forbes 2011/12 collection, available online and in galleries nationwide.
