You are viewing a gorgeous bronze casting of a Scottish stag which is signed by Borman on the base (please see close up photo). The piece has been cast from the finest dark brown bronze which has a lovely nutty brown patina. It would make for a great decorative item for your home and is offered as it is in perfect condition.
You can just imagine this creature emerging from a misty wood in the Scottish Highlands such is the quality of this sculpture. Borman has really caught the beauty and poise of the beast with great skill. We bought this from a dealers in Cumbria whilst on a buying trip in the North West.
Stag (mammal), hoofed mammal found in Europe, Asia, and North America. It is 1.2 m (4 ft) at the shoulder, with a red-brown coat and a short tail. The male’s branched antlers have at least ten tines and are shed annually; females lack antlers. The males live alone or in casual groups, but the females and their offspring live in highly organized herds. Their habitat is variable, including woodland, grassland, and moors. They eat a range of vegetation, such as grasses, tree bark, and tree and shrub shoots. During breeding season, from early September to mid-October, a male attaches itself to a group of females and spend its days circling them to ward off rivals. Any fighting between rival males is known as rutting. The female usually bears a single fawn, and calves stay with their mothers for two to three years.
Being bronze this will last forever without rusting and hence is a great investment as it will always appreciate in value. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing and nice to look at they can also become heirlooms.
Bronze is any of several alloys consisting mainly of copper and tin. Neither ancient nor modern bronzes consist only of these two metals. Zinc, lead, and silver were added to bronze alloys by Greek and Roman founders for use in tools, weapons, coins, and objects of art. Zinc, lead, and other metals are occasionally present in modern bronze.
