We have had at least one Miniature Dachshund in our home for over the last 17 years. I've always enjoyed their company mainly because I think that they are so comical to watch. When our first dachshund 'Maggie' was alive I used her as my model for sculpting her in the classic Doxie sitting pose while resting in a small flower bed. The original sculpture was cast in bronze which I still have and still get a great amount of joy looking at.
I've recently decided to offer this sculpture as an open edition casting series. Each of these castings are fabricated from a rugged marble-filled resin which gives a very nice weight to the piece and the final finish is a high quality bronze powder metal coating that is polished to bring out the metal and then coated with a superior UV and rust inhibitor that will provide many years of protection if placed outdoors.
