Sculpture: 'The Shrew (Bronze Shrew on Exotic Leaf statuette)' by Francois Viljoen
Mouse bronze sculpture statuette for sale for Indoors Inside Interior display by the Talented Sculptor François Viljoen, who writes.....

They are mostly from Africa and eats mostly insects. Known for its long nose, long tail, thin legs and super speed. They are not highly social animals, but many live in monogamous pairs. They`re very active, but very seldom seen; elephant shrews are wary, well camouflaged, and adept at jumping or dashing away from threats. Words that came to mind while working on this project were: "alertness or readiness". The Bowl itself, in this work, had an organic and fauna origin/inspiration.
