Cast using reconstituted stone and cement, this pair of dog statues has a light sandstone finish. Reconstituted stone is organic stone that has been crushed into small pebbles. These fragments are then combined with a binding agent like cement. Sometimes coloring pigments are added to the mix, as is the case with these dogs, giving them a chalky gray hue. The resulting aggregate is poured into a mold where it is left to harden. After the blend has set, the mold is removed, rendering a durable work of art.
These long-haired dogs have been depicted in a contrapposto position, with their noses near the ground. Based on their low stances, pointed tails, and wide-eye gazes, it appears as if the dogs are tracking game through vegetation, which can be seen beneath their necks and hind legs. The top of the thick plinth has been textured with undulating lines, adding to the impression that they are traversing across a green expanse. A perfect addition for any animal lovers, these cast stone dog statues can be displayed indoors or outside.
CONDITION: Good condition with minor buildup and discoloration. Light chipping and nicks.
