Buffalo Killing Lion, by Robert Glen (b.1940) represents a bull, a truly powerful and unstoppable creature, pressing down on a lion in an attempt to kill it, as the lion tries to protect itself, putting its claws are deep inside the bull's fur. The lion's jaw is wide open, implying a loud roar. This sculpture is the part of a limited edition of sculptures, with the current sculpture being the fourth out of ten ever created. Detailed and professionally executed, this artwork reflects the Robert Glen's artistic style. It is made completely out of bronze, signed by the artist "Robert Glen", numbered "4/10" and stamped by "Fonderia M Italy" at the bottom of the sculpture base. The approximate dimensions of the sculpture are 11½" inches in height, 24" inches in width and 8½" inches in depth. The art piece comes with a free certification of authenticity and $30,000.00 insurance value.
Born in Kenya in 1940, Robert Glen showed an interest in art and natural history at an early age. At sixteen years old, he was accepted to serve an apprenticeship in taxidermy at the studio of Coloman Jonas in Denver, Colorado. It was then that his interest in sculpture was born. Returning home after three years of training, he began a transition from taxidermy to sculpting animals in the European tradition of animaliers, working in various media before casting his first bronze in 1970. Since then, Robert Glen's work has met with great success worldwide and is represented in many private collections, including that of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, His Highness the Aga Khan and the late Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta. Glen has had many solo exhibits all over the world and his public sculpture of the Mustangs, located near Dallas, Texas, was voted the to be the best sculpture in the world in 2012. Today, Rob continues to work out of his simple camp studio, where he has lived for the past fifteen years with his partner, the accomplished painter Sue Stolberger. Together Sue and Robert inspire each other's work as well as their passion for natural history, ecology and conservation.
