Taking it Easy

Over the years of working in wildlife conservation Steve witnessed and endured some terrible things which shaped him and his artwork for years to come. One of the most powerful of these was with the baby African Elephant called Maluti.

Steve had the chance to work alongside Maluti a beautiful orphan elephant from the age of around 6 weeks and was seen as the oldest and fittest of the orphans on the program. Unfortunately, she came to an unexpected end one night due to a lung condition, this hit the whole team so hard and Steve was left devastated. He decided to sculpt and portray Maluti in bronze so her story and memory would live on.

This piece has a lovely feel with Maluti captured lying down, poised with a gentle and warm spirit, both characteristics that resonated through to Steve in his time spent with her. This composition combined with the incredible details created from Steve’s tooling strokes creates a very welcoming sculpture that really draws in the audience and allows them to connect with the character of Maluti and feel her story through Steve’s expression, which is exactly what he wanted to achieve.
