The koi a living jewel cherished by koi hobbyist around the world. Koi come in many patters and colors. I introduced  color without having the bronze lose its bronze look and feel. Too much opaque color is frowned on by some bronze collectors. Therefore, I used semi-transparent patinas to allow the under layers to show.

The bronze portrays a 27” koi at the surface of a pond with its mouth open; anticipating food. Yes, the body type of the koi is consistent with a female’s confirmation. The female koi are wider than the males.

The size and meticulous artistic quality of this bronze statue makes a grand statement in any office or home setting.

This bronze koi statue was cast at Andevan Bronzeworks located in Burbank, California. The foundry uses the finest pure bronze available. The foundries talented team of artisans is very consistent in the quality of bronzes they fabricate.

The foundry’s patina artist applied the patina under high heat so that it has permanently fused into the bronze itself. This is a high quality and classic work of fine art that will continue to be cherished for centuries.

The sculpture is mounted onto a marble base, has a sizeable presence at 19" high, by 14" wide; 25.5” in depth. It is numbered and signed by me.
