Poppy with Cornflower and Bee by Keith Sherwin - Richard Cooper & Company Bronze
Every school child knows of the importance of the Honey Bee and symbolism of the red Poppy. In this design, Keith Sherwin has brought them together in a beautiful natural setting - two strong messages in one bronze. The Poppy and Honey Bee are both carefully hand painted to give life to this engaging cameo from our countryside
The Poppy is made in solid foundry bronze using the ancient method of lost wax casting. The design finished by the art of patination where various acids are applied to the surface of the bronze and heat applied to create deep rich brown and green patinas. The Poppy, Cornflower, Honey Bee and foliage are delicately hand painted in artists oils. Then bronze is then sealed with a special wax which further enhances the colour and protects the bronze for years to come.
Your Poppy 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.
