9¼" x 14½" x 12" / 23cms x 37cms x 30cms
- Nick Bibby is widely regarded as one of thepreeminent sculptors of his generation. From a young age Bibbys passion has been nature and the natural world. Fascinated by both form and detail, Bibby models with a fluidity and energy that few can equal, simultaneously and effortlessly combining that energy with a jewel-like attention to detail, resulting in sculptures that look as though they live and breathe. The resulting sculptures are both beautiful works of art and loving portraits, be they bird, animal, or human. Bibbys sculptures range from monumental to miniature, but all show an exquisite attention to detail. Throughout his artistic career Bibby has received many notable commissions including a scientifically accurate life size sculpture of a Dodo, on permanent exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, and in 2013 he was commissioned by Brown University to sculpt a monumental, life-size Kodiak Brown Bear, which stands in pride of place on their campus in Rhode Island.
