ABSTRACT
The article focuses on animal sculptures. Animals have been prominently depicted in European sculpture with horses and equestrian figures an especially common and often monumental motif. Animal sculptor Rembrandt Bugatti represented his animal subjects at peace, depicting intimate moments such as a giraffe bends down to drink, and a zebra and gazelle nuzzle. Many of today's wildlife sculptors are motivated to preserve the heroic dignity and natural beauty of the animal world for posterity and some, like Kent Ullberg, have used their sculpture as a vehicle to support wildlife conservation projects and draw attention to the need for preserving biodiversity.
