Sandicast, Animal Sculptures
Internationally renowned San Diego artist Sandra Brue has been bringing sculptures to life for over 25 years. She founded Sandicast in 1981 and it was a success right from the start. Her hand-cast, hand-painted animal replicas became famous for their stunning realism and incredible attention to detail. Purebred dogs, cats, wolves and wildlife are all part of her extensive collection. Queen Elizabeth and President Clinton are just a few of the many celebrities that have Sandicast animals. In 2005, the Neufeld family acquired Sandicast, allowing Sandy more time to devote to her philanthropic endeavors.
Sandicast offers a wonderful selection of dogs, cats, and a variety of wildlife sculptures - especially wolves. All are hand-cast, hand-painted, and are a must have for animal lovers.
Each piece is hand-cast and hand-painted and virtually comes to life when sparkling glass eyes are inserted. What makes Sandicast unique is the fact that there are not only several sculpture sizes from which to choose (Life Size, Companion Size, Original Size, Mid Size and Small), but also a variety of animal poses available within each breed of dog - Standing, Sitting, Sitting Pretty, Lying, Lying Side, Lying Back and Crouching - each with its own distinctive expression.
