Rare sculpture-Chimpanzee 'Sally' by Rowland Ward ,Bronze sculpture,stone sculpture,horror sculpture,religious sculpture

Today I was just surfing the Internet in the morning and I have found some rare sculptures that I wish to share with you. These are really nice.

A Rare Sculpture of the Chimpanzee 'Sally' by Rowland Ward of London ( 1800 to 1900 )

Dimensions:

21.50cm wide 34.00cm high 19.00cm deep (8.46 inches wide 13.39 inches high 7.48 inches deep)

Rowland Ward was a famous, innovative and world renowned taxidermist whose shop at 'The Jungle, Picadilly' at the end of the 19th Century became a social institution for sporting enthusiasts. One of Rowland Ward's first commissions was to sculpt small models of animals which were cast in bronze. A model of a lion was created for the Duke of Connaught in 1911 and is now in the collections of the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff. Ward regularly went to study the animals at London Zoo, which is where in life Sally the chimpanzee lived. His expertise as a sculptor and artist helped to sharpen his skills as a taxidermist.
