300+ hours of work to make my first bronze piece. It measures 26x16x14 inches and weighs about 90 lbs with the base on it. The bronze was poured in two parts and I had to weld the head back on and re-texture the neck with a small chisel and hammer.

It certainly was a blast to work on! Since it was my first bronze piece I also learned so much from it. Hopefully I can get back into bronze work someday.

Thank you. I think adding the patina to it was the my favorite part of the process. Every time I scrapped some away and waxed it, it looked better and better.
