Miniature wax-cast bronze mermaid sitting on a rocky cliff by Pete Johnston of Little Harbour, Bahamas. Faintly marked "PETE JOHNSTON" on the base. Measures 3 1/8 inches tall X 3 3/4 inches long.
In the Foundry, the Johnston's produce bronze sculpture using the 5,000 year old Lost Wax Process. This is the only bronze foundry in the Bahamas.
Little Harbour's remote and lush surroundings offered inspiration for bronze sculptor, the late Randolph Johnston. The Johnston's family has had a vivid history since settling this harbour over 50 years ago. Here they built a Bronze Art Foundry to cast their renowned sculptures. Peter Johnston continues his father's art in bronze and gold depicting the marine wildlife around him.
