Miniature Bronze Hares Dancing by Richard Cooper Bronze

This beautiful miniature captures the moment when three hares might dance, usually in moonlight, or at dusk. Images of three hares can be found in sacred sites throughout the Middle East and Far East, and in Christian Churches they represent the Trinity. For others they represent a moment in time that few are lucky enough to see in the natural world.

These dancing hares have been sculpted by Michael Simpson for the Butler & Peach collection.  They are cast in pure foundry bronze and presented in a printed box and soft pouch with a miniature booklet detailing the full range.

The company started life to design and manufacture limited edition foundry bronze sculptures and collectibles. The founder, Richard Cooper, had previously owned Country Artists Ltd, of Stratford upon Avon. A company he had also founded. This was a successful company designing and manufacturing animals, birds and a wide collection of wildlife subjects from around the world. All the sculptures were made in resin and hand painted in sizes from miniature to life size.

When the company was sold in 2004 Richard was not ready to retire and decided to start a new venture in the same arena but in bronze rather than resin as the base material.

Initially, Richard decided to develop comparatively large sculptures of wildlife studies and figurative work suitable for art galleries in contrast to the smaller subjects from the previous company, which were sold to gift shops.
