Hester Odgers – Duvacel’s Gecko Bronze Miniature

£150

Dimensions:  5 x 3 x 3cm Weight:  70g  Limited Edition of 20

Duvacel’s Gecko (Hoplodactylus duvaucelii)  is a small, highly detailed bronze miniature. This enigmatic and threatened New Zealand species is shown curled dynamically around a stone, displaying the toe-pads and large, unblinking eyes that are the characteristic traits of a gecko. It was made using the lost wax casting method and during the hand-carving process particular attention was paid to the detailing of the skin texture, giving the piece a dense, tactile quality. The piece is freestanding and carries the artist signature on the underside of the base.

Hester is a biology graduate and conservation worker and self-taught artist living and working on a rewilding farm in Devon. She specializes in intricate miniature sculptures, with a particular fondness for unusual and underappreciated species. She enjoys the tactility of a 3-dimensional piece, and the way it focuses the attention on the details of the animal’s form and character.

Wildlife art comes from a place of love for the natural world, and when you love something you protect however you can. It’s a real privilege to be able, through my artwork, to contribute in a small way to the invaluable work DSWF does.

Thanks to Hester, 50% of the net profits from the sale of this artwork will support DSWF’s work protecting endangered species across Africa and Asia
