Description

Details

A 'Boxing Hares' sterling silver sculpture No. 12 of 20 by Lucy Kinsella, the limited edition pair of long eared brown hares caught mid boxing match, with one stood tall on stretched hind legs raining blows down on the other who crouches lower with front paws raised in defence and with head and ears pulled back. These ‘mad march hares’ as they became known are frequently regarded as the first sign of spring and whilst it was long assumed that they were two males competing for dominance it is in fact more usually a female fighting off the unwanted amorous advances of a male and therefore forms part of the hares’ courtship rituals. They are sculpted in Kinsella’s instantly recognisable style with her dynamic, impressionistic treatment of surface texture and would make a striking addition to any mantle piece, table or sideboard.

Directors notes
Born in Hampshire in 1960, Kinsella now lives in Leicestershire. As an animal sculptor inspired by Barye, Degas and Bugatti, her work ranges from delicate table-top bronzes to life-size and monumental sculpture. Kinsella’s trademark is her expressive handling and fine detailing, capturing movement and energy. Her work is held in many collections in the UK and around the world.

Kinsella, Lucy

“A desire for being with, observing and drawing animals has been with me from my earliest memory, so it comes as no surprise that as a professional artist I am an animalier.” Lucy Kinsella.
