Red Deer Stags – “The Duel”

Having previously sculpted a small study of “The Emperor of Exmoor” stag, as a memorial to this amazing animal, tragically killed by an unknown poacher. I was eager to revisit these beautiful beasts, this time sculpting a pair of duelling Red Deer Stags. Entitled, “The Duel”, this 1/4 life-size bronze sculpture depicts the titanic struggle for supremacy between two massive, ‘Royal’ stags!

As you can see, it’s a pretty dramatic, action packed, subject, which I have really enjoyed sculpting. Red Deer are such impressive animals, and Britain’s largest native wild animal. I often see them, as I walk the moors, mountains and woods of Devon, Somerset and Cumbria – always a thrill, especially during the rut, when the bass bellows and clashing antlers of duelling stags can echo for miles, setting blood pumping and heart racing!
