Sir William Reid Dick's Kelpie
Marly is right in some respects on the subject of "Kelpie" on my English Sculpture blog. Here is a bronze version of the same sculpture. The plaster would have been made as a "master" and kept by the foundry or the sculptor in case of accident and for the record. Smaller or larger versions could be made from this "master". "Artprice" mentions a sale of this work with details but you have to pay to see a photo of it. So for the time being I will still have to hope I got it right!
