World of Bronze by Richard Cooper & Company
Aquatic Birds is the correct description of the Penguin. A bird that does not fly but has webbed flippers and a streamlined body helping it to swim at speed and with enviable manoeverability. Penguins, like the Puffins tend to mate for life, spending half their time in the water and the rest on land. The sociability of the bird is shown here in this endearing bronze by Michael Simpson.

The Penguins are made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design is finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create a deep rich brown patina. Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
Your Penguin sculpture is beautifully presented in a printed box containing a signed certificate of authenticity. The bronze is engraved with the sculptor’s signature and limited edition number, matching the certificate enclosed.
