"Lifelike animal bronze - Elephant begging - signed Bugatti"
This lifelike animal bronze sculpture with the title "Elephant begging" was created in 1908 by the famous Italian sculptor Rembrandt Bugatti. The stunning animal bronze figurine allegorises an Indian elephant begging for nutrition or going down to drink some water on a standpipe. The nozzle of the elephant is going down while the animal is buckeling his front limbs. Rembrandt Bugatti created a very realistic portray of an Indian Elephant. The shown physiognomy is in proportion to the natural physiognomy of the young elephant. The great sculptor signed this animal bronze with "Bugatti". The sculpture made of 100% finest bronze is fixed on a flat dark marble base. The marble socle is a great subfont and completes the figure in a classy way.
As all of the bronze products in our shop, this exhibit is handmade in our own foundry and subject to our strict quality inspections throughout the entire process of fabrication. All of our sculptures are exclusively compounded with the help of lost-wax casting.
Bronze Animal Sculptures for Sale
Rembrandt Bugatti, the artist who created this unique sculpture, was born on October 16, 1884 in Milan, and died on January 8 1916 in Paris. Due to the relations of his parents, he was acquainted with many famous artists of that time from a very young age on. He attended the local Academy of Arts and very soon found his main interest: animal sculptures. Over the years, Rembrandt Bugatti's work has been influenced a little by Cubism. But it was Art Deco that influenced Rembrandt Burgatti most and helped him get 10 years ahead of his time. The portrayed elephant is the biggest land-living animal but also one of the endangered animals. Most of the specimens are living in national parks in Africa, while wild elephants only live in regions of Middle Africa. Approximately 300.000 elephants are living in Africa nowadays because humans hunt them illegally. The animals are living on an herbal diet and they are able to eat 200 kilogram nutrition a day.
