Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Artist Michael L. Jacques has been painting for many years and his works are part of public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Canada. Today, he continues to paint but is also a highly sought after sculptor. His fondness of dogs has led him to creating whimsical wire sculptures of almost every imaginable breed.

This large and rather elegantly postured limited edition wire sculpture of an Afghan Hound titled BEST IN SHOW is absolutely extraordinary in its execution. Silver metal wire is woven into a metal mesh interior frame that is barely visible beneath the long cascading wire hair that curls at the back of the dog and beneath its chest. Long flexible strands of wire frame the Afghan's face that is punctuated by a black coiled wire nose and eyes, creating a friendly expression. The dog appears to float atop a custom black stained wood pedestal. The pedestal is mounted on coasters so that it can be relocated with ease. A steel rod with an end is used to maneuver the sculpture forward, backward and in any direction desired. A steel rod that is hidden beneath the base and inserted for safekeeping through a hole at the end of the base.
