Sandicast dog figurines have often been noted for their realism and ability to make the casual observer require a second look. This has never been more true than with the Sandicast Fawn Chihuahua Figurine Statue originally crafted by the renowned dog sculptor Sandra Brue. The most striking feature of this beautiful Chihuahua figurine is it’s adorable expression filled face and those endearing soft brown loving eyes. As you look closer the realistic detail of the entire Chihuahua Figurine Statue begins to come to life. As everyone who has ever spent time with a dog their coat and body structure is not smooth. On the contrary, dogs are alive with various folds, wrinkles, muscle tone, body tension points and relaxing body points which are evident with simple examination. Likewise, a dogs coat consists of thousands of individual hairs, layered one on top of the other, some very fine, some heavier and thicker. All these same traits are picked up in the Sandicast dog figurine originals like the Sandicast Fawn Chihuahua Figurine Statue shown. Even in the picture it is easy to pick out the ruffled, folding layered look of the Chihuahua’s white chest hair. In the same area the dog’s muscle tone needed to hold the head cocked a little to one side seems a little more tense as if working to hold the head just so. When analyzing the feet it also appears as if there is a little more tension as if to hold the Chihuahua in that certain pose. The back legs look relaxed and the tail looks neatly tucked up against the left hind leg tightly as if actually holding that pose. Coming up the back you can really observe the detail of the high quarters muscle and body tone as well as how the hair follows each contour in a natural and flowing motion. Returning to the head the ears are relaxed but also at attention ready for a command or ready to provide love. Even the forehead seems to be alive with interest. Wherever you look at the Sandicast Fawn Chihuahua Figurine Statue it seems to be alive, so this lends itself to the question what makes Sandicast dog figurines look so real and why do they make you take a second look. The answer is simple, everything about the Sandicast Fawn Chihuahua Figurine Statue makes it look real and deserves not only a second look but a detailed analysis of one of the greatest dog figurine sculptures in history, Sandra Brue.
