Small fragments of metal are welded over eachother to create a scale-like effect across the entirety of the reptile’s body, right down to its pointed snout and webbed feet. Replicas of their sharp and jagged teeth are exposed as their jaws open wide ready to catch their next meal. This large crocodile sculpture looks authentic due to its life-size dimensions, and it looks even more real when placed outside. The powerful body of the sculpture is striking when their wide bellies lay on the muddy banks of a lake, looking to slide into the water at any given moment. Guests will do a double take in the garden when they spot one of these fierce beasts lurking on the grass camoflauged by surrounding plants and bushes.
All sculptures are beautifully handcrafted by our team of artists in Kenya. Each piece is made from recycled metal using oil drums and car parts. The sculpting process begins when a wire framework is created. Selected pieces of metal are then welded to the frame to build up the sculpture. The completed sculptures are hand finished in the UK using a lacquer. Sculptures are lacquered to protect them from the environment if placed outside. The lacquer applied will give the product and extended product life of between 9-12 months depending on weather conditions.

If a sculpture is going to be placed outdoors, regular care and maintenance is necessary to retain the original finish. Lacquer used on the sculptures is available to purchase from Pangea Sculptures in store or online. Pangea Sculptures does not recommend that any sculpture should be sat in water. It is the member's responsibility to maintain the finish on the sculpture. Ground fixings can be purchased from Pangea Sculptures should you decide to locate your sculpture outdoors and require such fixings. Please contact https://pangeasculptures.com/
Sculptures are designed as ornamental features and not as toys and so are not suitable for riding or climbing on. Sculptures are not recommended for children as they may have sharp parts such as tusks, horns, teeth, and claws. We recommend that children are supervised around a sculpture at all times.
