Commissioned by the Fine Art Society in London, this new cast of the sculpture will be displayed next year at the Victoria and Albert Museum and then at the Musee d’Orsay in Paris.
Black Isle Bronze has built its reputation on high-profile public sculpture, including a bust of John Paul Getty II for the National Gallery in London.
It has also produced statues of Wilf Mannion and George Hardwick at Middlesborough FC, Stan Cullis at Wolverhampton Wanderers, The Batsman at Lords, four heroic-scale rugby players at Twickenham, jockey Frankie Dettori at Ascot; and racehorse Be Friendly at Haydock Park.
More recent projects include a 14ft statue of Sir Henry “Hotspur” Percy, which was created to celebrate 700 years of the Percy family at Alnwick.
