Favourite Birds Celebrated in Bronze

The Latest bird to be celebrated in bronze by the sculptress JOEL Walker is the lovely Robin.





A familiar visitor to our gardens and parks this cheerful bird has a long history of notifying us of the coming and changing of the seasons.
Bronze is a durable and prestigious material long associated with fine art.

Joel has developed techniques to achieve the indications of the colour tones of the Robin Redbreast without losing the beauty of the bronze.

Suitable as a gift for indoors or to be set in the garden the Robin makes a cheerful sight any day.
