This rather striking sculpture is the perfect gift or celebration of a special day. Its rare that you can own a sculpture hand made by a famous artist, and Jeanne Rynhart is renowned round the world for her lifesize statues in Dublin which are a popular tourist attraction.
Rynhart Fine Art Bronze sculptures are known and admired the world over as the ideal Irish gift. The company, started by Jeanne Rynhart, in 1981 and well known for such iconic public sculpture as Molly Malone, Annie Moore and the Rose of Tralee continues to enjoy success today through expansion and adaptation, plus the fact that the product is 100% hand made in Ireland. In 1994 Audrey Rynhart joined her mother and now she and her husband Les Elliott run the business from their studio in Glengarriff, West Cork, one of Ireland’s most popular holiday destinations.
Each piece, from the famous Molly Malone statue in Dublin down to smaller bas relief, is individually hand made. When happy with the modelling, a mould is made and production begins in bronze plate (cold cast bronze) or smelt bronze (for gallery work/one off public sculpture and private commissions). Finally the pieces are hand polished and finishing touches added.
