She is life sized and is patinated in life-like badger colours, including a pink belly where badgers are mostly hairless.
I have a deep love for badgers and sculpted this piece as a protest to the way this supposedly 'protected' species has been persecuted, over the last decade in mainland England.
The video is of the checking of the patination of the the
life-sized badger 'Persecuted'.
From the top she appears to be quite a simple shape, but below reveals a lot more going on in terms of shape and colour. Badgers are largely hairless on their undersides which is why there is so much pink.
I most especially loved learning about, and sculpting, her paws! As a point of interest, badgers keep their claws sharp by keeping them off of the ground, suspended in the air on big spongy pads. As a result, she will not scratch your furniture!
