Bronze – edition 6/50
An 11cm high bronze badger maquette, a small cub sized version of the life sized badger that Ama is working on. ‘Persecuted’ is looking over her shoulder in these worrying times of wide spread badger culling & wildlife crime in the UK.
Ama Menec is based in the West Country, and is best known for her bronze birds of prey. Her work celebrates the successful reintroductions of species such as the Red Kite, and naturally recovering Buzzard. Ama is a passionate supporter of rewilding and has created life sized bronzes for zoos.
Her sculptures are stylistically inspired by etchings, woodblock prints, early 20th century illustration and Art Deco stone carving.
