DOLPHIN DIANA LIFE SIZE DANCING HOT CAST BRONZE

$79,500.00

This is the piece that got Foot started on his career as a sculptor.  It was his second effort at carving marble, and it was motivated by the friendship formed with a dolphin named Diana who lived in the pool at Hamilton Island when Foot arrived there in 1985.  Diana loved the attention Foot gave her, she especially liked having her body massaged and listening to Foot play the harmonica.  The original of Diana is in a special place Foot built in the back of his gallery on the island.

Some years later Foot decided to enlarge the original Dolphin Diana to a full bodied version, and this is the result.  Due to the configuration, it can only be done in hot cast bronze.  Although there is one on display at the Hamilton gallery at any time, it is preferred to supply a new one from the foundry, with a wait time of 2 to 3 months. It would be possible to do her in a polished version, as seen in this pages main image,  but it is recommended for indoor placement only, as the bronze will oxidize eventually to what you see in the alternate images.
