As the economy continues to wander many Animal Figurines companies continue to drop statues that are slow sellers. This allows animal, dog and cat figurines companies such as Sandicast the opportunity to concentrate on their best most profitable animal figurines. According to Mary at Anwo.com Animal World “We have also seen the Dog Sandicast Figurine Statues adapting to the ever changing retail environment with the packaging which protects and displays the smaller animal figurines in an more merchantable situation.” This is in contrast to the traditional way of displaying Sandicast statue figurines retailers utilized in the past, displaying them raw so to speak directly on an appropriate eye level shelf. Currently the Sandicast Figurine Statue Product Line continues to streamline it’s product offering with profitable more contemporary packaged animal figurines statues being the selected presentation method for future retail trends. As with all business the ultimate test is to survive and Sandicast continues to survive. With the demise of popular animal figurine companies like Stone Critters, The Herd, Charming Tails and Livingstone, Sandicast remains as the only survivor from the most popular animal figurine statue brand names of the 1980’s, 1990’s and early 2000’s. For collector this streamlining of product line is an excellent opportunity to collect limited editions for future value. A perfect example of this would be the Red Miniature Pinscher Sandicast Figurine Statue shown above.

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.

Capturing the essence of the breed is the Sandicast Shiba Inu dog figurine. Made of cast stone with detailed hand painting the Shiba Inu dog figurine statues by Sandicast are very realistic. Sandra Brue the artist who created the original Shiba Inu Sandicast figurine and the larger companion size Shiba Inu figurines caught all the wrinkles, folds, muscle tones and the features of the breed from the beautiful facial expression to their unique upturned spiral tail. Detail is authentic down to the coat where Sandra Brue layered each hair painstakingly one upon the other in the correct pattern just like a real Shiba Inu dog.
