Their characteristic, pouched bills are depicted to perfection by sections of recycled metal whilst their feathered bodies are crafted by layering smaller fragments on top of one another. Pelican sculptures are well balanced due to their wonderfully, webbed feet and sturdy, short legs that are apt for sitting on a number of surfaces inside and out. Place next to a water feature in the garden or close to a pond as if admiring the fish. Or perhaps you’d like to place one of these life-size exotic birds inside as an interesting feature for a hallway or landing.
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.
