Bronze study of a stretching cheetah. RHS under the belly bearing Ingwe Foundry stamp, 'S31' or 'S3I', Edition 3/15, monogram BMR. Artist unknown. I have been unsuccessfully resarching who the artist could be.
The stretching pose of the cheetah is contemplative with a graceful, ease and content expression suggesting its attunement and hierarchy within the landscape and the animal world. Its power is conveyed with a noble quality in the pose, the sleek form and the sinewy musculature. Beautifully handworked with rich brown patina.
Almost certainly inspired by the work of Dylan Lewis who is widely recognised as one of the world's foremost sculptors of the animal form, particularly the big cats and Ingwe was his foundry.
