Based on a magnificent Limousin bull named “Toro” from the Powassan area, Peter Sloan has captured the strength and beauty of this exceptional breed.
"Toro" was sculpted for over a year using photos, video and frequent visits to achieve an honest and highly detailed interpretation.
The process of lost wax casting requires that a wax of each piece cast be provided to the foundry. The foundry gives back in bronze an exact replica of the wax. It is assembled in wax by Peter and is meticulously worked on to retain a high quality of detail and finish. Each one is inspected thoroughly to insure a perfect result before it is cast in Bronze.
Each sculpture in the edition will include the foundry mark and is signed and numbered by the artist. A certificate of authenticity will accompany each sculpture.
"Toro" is limited to an edition of 99 plus two artist proofs.
