This elegant dove is a reproduction of an original cast by Everard Meynell, a renowned sculptor. It has been handcrafted in reconstituted stone, which has almost exactly the same appearance as quarried stone. It is part of a set of four, so you can collect your very own dole of doves if you so desire.
The structure of the stone encourages moss and lichen growth; this enables the piece to acquire an antique appearance, so that it will effortlessly blend in with the surroundings of your garden. This statue has been handmade by specialist craftsmen in the UK, who ensure that every piece meets the same high standards.
Reconstituted stone has been around for centuries, but first became very popular in stately homes in the 16th century. In the 20th century, the method of creating reconstituted stone improved so that it became possible to create sculptures that are even more durable and hard-wearing.
Everard Meynell is a renowned sculptor who has been practising his art for around 35 years. His work can be viewed in RHS Wisley; Borde Hill Garden, Pashley Manor Gardens and on Herm, in a special display, in the Channel Islands.
