Customise your own Life Size Animal Model
Artwork and Customisation
Our in-house "livestock" artist can undertake customised artwork based on a client`s brief.
The animals can be transformed by a simple idea or design. Please request a quote regardless of how bizarre you think your concept is....
Obviously the longer the leadtime to customise the better, however we frequently complete to some very tight deadlines. Generally speaking, we can normally supply and deliver within four weeks; depending on the clients` brief. There are lots of examples on this page as well as in Our Gallery to show just what is possible.
Bodo`s Schloss Model Milking Cow
Top London Restaurant & Night Club - Bodo`s Schloss, recently commissioned a special Alpine Milking Cow to welcome customers to their unique Alpine themed premises.
Billed as chic, sophisticated, glamorous fun mixed with authenticity and tradition - and that`s just Heidi the Beautiful Cow.
And notice the novel Austrian technique using pigtails to milk the cow...
Whilst indoors, clientele are experiencing traditional Austrian Cuisine served by staff wearing Ledehosen and Dirndl; Heidi greets them on their arrival outside ; complete with Tyrolean Cow Bell around her neck.
Hosting Europe's finest DJ's attracts top celebrities; and word has reached us that Bruno Mars` recent first anniversary gig at the venue, resulted in Heidi being filled full of champagne...resulting in the ultimate apres ski cocktails...
Although it has to be said, that it would appear from the adjoining paparazzi`s pic, that Heidi herself looks like she may have had a glass of champagne too many...
Gentoo & Galapagos Penguins
Hull's top visitor attraction, The Deep, is one of the most spectacular aquariums in the world and is home to a whopping 3,500 fish including Europe’s only pair of green sawfish.
On Monday 3rd March 2014, The Deep opened its brand new Gentoo penguin exhibit.
VIPs (Very Important Penguins) took up residence in The Kingdom of Ice, and help explain to visitors about the threats to their habitat, issues surrounding climate change and ocean acidification as well as animal biology and food chains.
Last year we were commissioned by The Deep to produce a couple of Gentoo model penguins to be included in the exhibition which will give visitors views of the penguins across three floors.
Marketing Manager Becky Leach commented :
" . . . they look fab , and are on our fundraising display in the new gallery as we speak . . . "
This exhibit forms part of The Deep's new conservation initiative called ‘Project Penguin’, and will assist in raising funds for vital research work in the wild to help protect endangered penguins. Two additional penguin models were required - however, this time it was Galapagos Penguin Models.
The Galapagos Models were completed and despatched in readiness for their part in the exhibition.
These two fellows have obviously fallen out over a sardine as they don`t look like they are talking to each other ....
Union Jack Calf Cabinet Bookends
Customising the animal models usually entails a wee bit of natty artwork following a design brief. However, one client recently had bigger ideas which brought to mind Houdini`s magic trick of sawing an assistant in half , along with a touch of patriotism.
A British company was exhibiting at a Trade Show in Cologne, Germany. It was the worlds largest confectionery/ sweet stuff exhibition and they represented a number of chocolate and biscuit manufacturers in the International Market place...
They provided us with a brief which involved cutting one of our life size calf models in half and converting it into huge book ends with the use of metal plates to stabilise either end. To complete the look, both calf bookends had a union jack painted on them.
The patriotic bookends were then fitted at either end of a glass display cabinet specially selected with similar dimensions to the model calf. This inspirational addition ensured that this Cool Calf Britannia display really stood out from the crowd, and perfectly showcased the very best of British products !
" I just wanted to send you a couple of pictures of the 2014 exhibition in Germany.
Everybody loved the calf !!!
It was a real talking point
It arrived back safe in the UK and is being rehomed in our Bosses Garden !!
Thank you for making our Show Stopper "
