Jesse Nusbaum is a sculptor from Connecticut best known for creating realistic bronze animals.
His commitment to fidelity is displayed in a unique technique he developed to highlight surface details. The resulting sculptures appear so lifelike that viewers have reported feeling like they have “experienced a face-to-face encounter with the actual animal.”
“I strive to replicate the actual subject,” explained the artist during a recent interview, “utilizing micro-detail encourages an intimate, close-up view.”
Made using over 100,000 individually hand-carved lines for the fur alone, this 100 percent hot cast bronze black panther sculpture weighs an incredible 31 pounds. Needless to say, it would make an exceptional addition to any home, office, or collection. Dimensions are 8.5″ high by 8″ wide with a depth of 24″.
