"Heron"
by Dennis P. Anderson

 

 

In this magnificent bronze by wildlife sculptor Dennis P. Anderson, a blue heron takes flight over lily pads by the wooded bank of a pond. Standing 6'-0" tall, this life-size monument makes a bold statement with its graceful, natural beauty, and commands awe from every angle.

 

 

The piece was cast in 1991 by Heartland Art Bronze, one of the Midwest's premiere art foundries. The distinctive blue patina with bronze highlights sets this piece apart from other monumental sculptures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The piece is privately owned and is for sale at this time. It is believed to be #4 of a proposed edition of 15, but since it is the last one made it is actually #4 of a series of 4. For additional information, feel free to contact Alan Webster:
