Wow. That looks just like MY dog. Sandicast, Inc. captures the spirit of man's best friend like no other company, making them the premier manufacturer of hand-cast animal sculptures. The company was started in 1981 when artist Sandra Brue realized her dream of combining her artistic talent and her lifelong love of animals. Because of the superb quality of her work, collectors around the world now pursue the demand for Sandicast animal sculptures. Queen Elizabeth and President Clinton are just a few of the many celebrities that have Sandicast animals. Sandra has sculpted more than 400 animals; the Sandicast Collection includes everything from dogs and cats to exotic wildlife. Each piece is hand-cast and hand-painted and virtually comes to life when sparkling glass eyes are inserted. What makes Sandicast unique is the fact that there are not only several sculpture sizes from which to choose (Life Size, Companion Size, Original Size, Mid Size and Small), but also a variety of animal poses available within each breed of dog - Standing, Sitting, Sitting Pretty, Lying, Lying Side, Lying Back and Crouching - each with its own distinctive expression. Sandicast invites you to discover their exquisite collection of hand sculpted animals available on Amazon.
