Butler and Peach - Miniature Cheetah in Cold Cast Bronze (Richard Cooper)
Butler and Peach - Miniature Cheetah in Cold Cast Bronze
A lovely miniature cheetah by Butler and Peach made in solid bronze using the lost wax method. This bronze cheetah is sprinting in the savannah probably hunting for something to eat.This small sculpture is 55mm high and is full of action.
Each minature bronze by Butler and Peach is presented in an elegant box with pouch and authentication certificate making it a stunning gift. This bronze barn owl is ideal for those that love British wildlife, birds of prey and of course, owls. 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. Once the mold is made, the wax model is melted and drained away. A hollow core can be created by introducing a heat-proof core that prevents the molten metal from totally filling the mold. The lost-wax method dates from the 3rd millennium BC and has changed very little since then.
