I was commissioned to do a series of bronze penguin sculptures for Buff Cove in the Falklands by Hatti and Kevin Kilmartin, who bought a 35,000 acre farm in the 70s and now attract thousands of visitors each year to experience the wildlife and beauty of the island. They were looking to have a series of bronze penguin sculptures as limited editions to sell in their gallery and cafe.
We decided to focus on King Penguins for this bronze wildlife series and in this bronze I was looking to capture the sensitivities of mother and child relationships. The outline of these two penguin sums up a feeling of protection and love from the mother and adoration and dependency from the baby.
