This bronze boxing hare is ideal for those that love British wildlife, especially hares. These bronze pieces are easy to keep clean, just buff with a soft cloth or brush.

The lost-wax process, also called “cire-perdue” is a method of metal casting where a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created using a wax model.

The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has changed very little since then.
