This model of a pair of badgers at play, created by Michael Simpson, captures a scene not many of us have the chance to see as badgers are nocturnal and a bit shy !
Michael studied in Staffordshire and was inspired by the traditions of Stoke on Trent. As a result of this he works in clay for his initial modelling, unlike most bronze artists who use wax.
They are made from solid foundry bronze, with a hand finished patina.
It is a limited edition sculpture - one of 150.
They stand 6cm tall, 8cm wide and weigh approximately 560g.
Each piece comes beautifully boxed with a certificate of authenticity. The certificate also includes information about the artist and the edition number .
