Profile image of Loet VanderveenLoet Vanderveen was born in Rotterdam, Holland. His home was very close to the zoo where during his early years, Loet spent a great deal of his time. It was during this period in life that he developed his love for animals. At night, listening to the sound of the wild animals in the zoo, he would fantasise about safaris to Africa... fantasies which were eventually realised!

Sculpture description:
Small bronze Herd of Impala Leaping and Running for the Joy of it statuettes / sculptures / ornaments /figurines for sale by the Loet Vanderveen.A stunningly detailed sculpture which captures a Herd of 4 Impala`s as they move across the Plains.
Loet Vanderveen believes that To capture the soul of the man, one must look into his eyes. To capture the eyes of the Beast, one must look into nature?s soul.?

Since Man`s primordial existence, he has conveyed an abstract desire to portray his idealistic virtues in the animal form.
His inclination has been to emulate the instinctive power and elegance of nature`s assembly. It is the innate elegance of nature that the sculpture strives to reproduce. Using a medium of cast and patinated bronze, Loet Vanderveen is able to seize the celebration of the animal?s form and beauty. This item is supplied in a packing crate complete with a hand signed certificate of authenticity. Please note that the piece detailed in this description is the large piece shown on the left hand side of the image. It is available in the patina shown (lead time 8-12 weeks), or in the lighter `winter wheat` patina on the smaller sculpture from stock immediately. Loet Vanderveen image Gina Taro.
Artist's comments:
Loet Vanderveen was born in Rotterdam, Holland. His home was very close to the zoo where during his early years, Loet spent a great deal of his time. It was during this period in life that he developed his love for animals. At night, listening to the sound of the wild animals in the zoo, he would fantasise about safaris to Africa ?.. Fantasies which were eventually realised! Hours before the bombardment of Rotterdam, the Dutch army was ordered to destroy all of the dangerous species in the zoo. The animals were destroyed as well as his home and these events led Loet into a new phase of his life.

He escaped from occupied Holland and upon his arrival in England; he was decorated for valour, by Queen Wilhelmina and served in the RAF. During the first eleven years, he lived in Zurich, London and New York, working as a fashion designer. He was not satisfied with his profession and a meeting with Fong Chow, the curator of the Far Eastern Department of the Metropolitan Museum in New York, led to private ceramic studies with Fong for the next three years. He learned a great deal about Chinese glaze techniques and applying fine glazes to the correct forms. This knowledge eventually led to applying patinas to bronze animal forms.

Mr Vanderveen left New York and built a mountain top house and studio 1, 600 feet above the Pacific Ocean, along California`s remote Big Sur coastline. This environment was incredibly conducive to Loet`s creativity. His first years in Big Sur were spent working on architectural commissions of ceramics, sculptured walls and lighting. Living in a remote area where there was an abundance of wildlife, coupled with his love for animals, prompted Loet to create ceramic animal forms. Striving for a more sophisticated and graceful image, he ventured into designing animals in bronze. These designs are enhanced by a rich palette of subtle patinas. These uniquely stylised interpretations are appreciated by distinguished worldwide collectors including;
