Cold cast copper, small edition of 20.
I made this sculpture by carving each element by hand, then combining the elements together like a jigsaw. I then made a master of the final sculpture and then made a big mould of the artwork. I cast each piece using copper powder and polyurethane resin. I then treat the copper to give each piece a very unique patina.
From Wikipedia: Pangolins are threatened by poaching (for their meat and scales, which are used in traditional Chinese medicine) and heavy deforestation of their natural habitats, and are the most trafficked mammals in the world. As of January 2020, there are eight species of pangolin whose conservation status is listed in the threatened tier.
