World of Bronze by Richard Cooper & Company
This little Penguin seems lost on its own. As a breed they are very sociable and live in large groups mainly in the Southern Hemisphere. Their short wings combined with large flippers make them amazing swimmers and well capable of providing a good supply of fresh fish.

This charming Penguin design is 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.
