Badgers

About this project

These bronzes mark the beginning of a complex work about badger persecution, and the consequences to the wider ecology of widespread badger culling via a Badger Trophic Cascade. The initial piece is a maquette of a sitting badger twisting and looking over its shoulder entitled ‘Persecuted’. The life sized version is nearing completion and should be cast later this year. Later again this will become the Trophic Cascade with the species lost tumbling in a spiral tide out of the back of the badger.

I love the shapes these two badgers make together, tho they are not sold as a pair.
