Portrait Sculpture of Basset Hound

Custom Desktop Sculpture of a Very Special Basset Dog


This is my first Basset dog portrait sculpture. I love depicting different breeds. It gives me a chance to do my research on their unique characteristics. Creating a dog portrait demands even more observation. Every dog is unique.

This is Seymour. He was called a "Basset on Stilts"
Basset hounds have very short legs, but Seymour happened to stand taller than your average Basset.



I was commissioned to create a custom desktop portrait sculpture of Seymour the Basset that would honor his noble spirit and unique looks.

  I can't wait to see this sculpture cast in bronze. This unique dog portrait will be a fine addition to my custom dog bronzes portfolio.
