Best Friends - New Miniature Collectible

I just released "Best Friends" a new miniature figurine. This bronze-cast and hand-painted miniature collectible stands at 7/8ths of an inch. The piece is based on a old figurine my parents found in an antique shop many years ago. I always liked the interaction between the boy and the dog. Reminds me of some of the Lee pieces I made years ago.

Here is a picture of the original full sized piece. I am not sure who the original artist is because I can't read the name on the base. The piece is cast in resin and probably made in the 70's.

Original - 8" Tall

Now here is my miniature bronze version that is under one inch in height.

"Best Friends" - Miniature - 7/8" Tall

I think it is fun to see the two pictures together. I made some changes in my version but basically followed the idea. I came up with my own coloration as the original was very subtle and almost has no color.

Best Friends was made in an edition of 75 pieces and is now retired. Available at your Zadar Miniatures Dealer. Issue price is $95.00. Signed and numbered on the bottom. Thanks for looking.
