A charming contemporary bronze entitled “Serenading Jack”. This bronze by Bryan Hanlon is of a singing blackbird. He sits upon a cast taken of the finial of his dog kennel at home. Every evening Bryan would take his working spaniel Jack for a walk. Upon their return the same blackbird would land on Jacks kennel and sing to him. Bryan decided to capture this touching moment played out each evening and so made this bronze of the black bird serenading his dog Jack. The edition is limited to twelve and this bronze is signed and marked as the artists copy.
