An Easter ‘Bunny’ to Treasure Forever from Nelson&Forbes
The Easter Bunny may be one of the most recognisable symbols of Easter (Sunday 8th April 2012), but according to Northwest European folklore the "Easter Bunny" is in fact a hare, making Nelson & Forbes’s charming Moon Gazing Hare sculpture (£175.00) the perfect alternative Easter gift.
Nelson & Forbes’s solid bronze Moon Gazing Hare, a symbol which traditionally signifies spring and is believed by many to bring good fortune, is a unique present that can be treasured forever.
Sculptor Sue Maclaurin is renowned for her depictions of British wildlife, and in particular her hares. This beautiful bronze sculpture, which comes in a limited edition of 250 pieces, is available to buy from Nelson & Forbes’s website and galleries nationwide.
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 2012 collection, available in galleries nationwide, or available to buy from www.nelsonandforbes.co.uk where the final order date for Easter is 02nd April 2012. Prices range from £65.00 to £2,000. For stockist information please call 01442 256290.
