Deer Me!


Cast Bronze Doe and Fawn Sculpture Group, Possibly Japanese (LEO Design)


Dear me!  It's the final day of November!  Where has the month (or the year) flown?  Here in Pittsburgh, we've already enjoyed little flurries—with just enough snow to whiten our garden.  Winter will be here in three weeks.  And Christmas four days after that.  Dear me!

This little bronze sculptural grouping—a spotted doe and her fawn—are nicely cast and finished in a light verdigris patina.  Though I am not certain, I suspect that they might be Japanese (from the Teens or Twenties).  The mother remains watchful while her baby scratches blithely, oblivious to life's dangers.  The fine detail, nice patina and the sensitivity of the sculptor's perceptive modeling all make the group a wonderful touch of nature brought indoors.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about them.
