Sculpture Hunter with dog
Beautiful metal statue of a hunter with his dog.
The hunter carries a bag on his hip and a rifle on his back.
The rabbit is a nice touch.
Beautiful details in the face, hands and tree.
The statue is completely made of metal and therefore quite heavy.
It is in relief, a 3D image.
The hunter statue was made by sculptor Mat Wanders from Margraten (Limburg, The Netherlands).
Mat Wanders (born 4-7-1933, died 9-5-1991) was a famous Limburg sculptor and designer of sculptures.
He designed sculptures of babies, children, professions, miners and wall sculptures for the ceramic company "PERKEO Kunstatelier GmbH".
His "Miners" series is well known in Germany and his "Baby figurines" series in Belgium.
He lived and worked in Margraten all his life.
Especially in Limburg, statues of Mat Wanders can be found on village squares and other public spaces.
In Margraten he also made "d'r Schutter" at the well (crossing Pastoor Brouwersstraat and Amerikaplein).
His sculptures have been sold and exhibited at fairs in Brussels, Paris and Frankfurt, among others.
