COMPANIONSHIP – Man and Lurcher

The relationship between man and dog goes back thousands of years and we have loved our dogs for centuries both as household pets and also during combat, where their ability to smell a scent or sense danger has been life saving.

Yes, your dog knows how much you love him! Dogs and humans have a very special relationship, where dogs have actually hijacked the human oxytocin bonding pathway that is normally reserved for our babies. When you stare at your dog, the oxytocin levels in both of you go up, the same as when you pet them and play with them. It makes you both feel good and reinforces your bonding.  Does your dog ever stare at you for no reason? They are just “hugging you” with their eyes.

The development of the Lurcher as a ‘type’ of hound is thought to originate from the time when only Noblemen were permitted to own pure bred Sighthounds such as the Greyhound, Saluki, Deerhound, Whippet and Wolfhound. The punishment for a Commoner for possessing one of these types of hounds was death. So the Lurcher was born to fulfil the need for the Commoners and Poachers for a fast and efficient hunting companion.

My sculpture showing a man interacting with a Lurcher, is intense and their stare is constant.  The question is, is the man trying to dominate or communicate to the Lurcher?  It’s a theatrical piece and is beautifully displayed under dramatic lighting in a sitting room.
