GENTLE THOUGHTS – Life-size Lurcher

Lurchers

Lurchers are special dogs and I have always found their beauty very compelling as I pass them in the street or on a walk, or visit a house full of lurchers, or whippets.  These dogs can vary in size and they can be mixed with greyhound or whippet which make them on the smaller side.  Or they can be bred with Irish Wolfhound or Saluki which would make them a lot bigger.  Generally, the lurcher is skinny with long, athletic legs, large chest, small ears and a long muzzle.

The coat of a lurcher tends to be longer.  Whilst they can move at such speed and so elegantly, they do not need a lot of exercise at all.  In fact they are very happy sitting on the sofa for most of the day!  They are very tactile and love to cuddle up to their owner and be loved and adored.  Although the saddest thing is they do not like cats and we have in fact had to rescue a friend’s cat from their two lurchers.  They had tried to kill the cat on numerous occasions.  So, lurchers are not always as gentle as they seem!

My garden sculpture

My garden sculpture of a life-size lurcher was sculpted in clay.  I used my smaller coffee table sized bronze lurcher sculptures as a starting point.  I wanted to express the gentleness, total adoration and loyalty of these dogs.  The head is leaning down, the ears are in a submissive pose.  However, I have tried to show off a strong physique by using strong gestural strokes in the clay.  This bronze sculpture is for the outdoor garden area, but can also works well inside the home, where it can fill a space of its own.   I have also shown a lurcher with a smokey grey finish which you can see on my website under ‘Garden Sculptures’.

The sculpture can be cast in bronze as a limited edition of 9, or bronze resin or iron resin as a limited edition of 48

Finishes: Please note that the images shown are purely an indication of how a piece may look and the colour of the finish may vary.
