Certificate of Authenticity

A striking bronze sculpture with natural burnt patina by wildlife artist Steve Winterburn.

As with all his incredible work, Steve has handled every stage of manufacture of this orangutan sculpture himself all the way through to final patina, and the rich burnt orange and ivory finish that brings the beautiful creature portrayed in ‘Wisdom of the Forest’ alive is a first for Castle Fine Art. This expertly-applied texture is synonymous with Steve’s wildlife sculptures, with the looseness of the style and finish allowing him to express the soul of the animal.

Steve Winterburn has long been interested in saving the orangutan, a species in rapid decline due to the disappearance of its habitats and has spent many years working with charities to save them. This has meant he has been able to travel extensively and have first-hand encounters with some of the magnificent animals he is representing in his sculptures, and he believes that sculpting a creature many would never encounter can trigger a more urgent and visceral response to the problems they are facing.
