About the piece:

This solid bronze sparrow was created using the lost wax casting process.  He sits on a branch of steel rooted on a steel base. 

Originally sculpted in clay, the artist made silicone and plaster molds, then cast the sparrow in wax.  These waxes were then sent to Burton Bronze Foundry on Salt Spring Islang, BC, Canada where fireproof molds were created and the bronze was poured.  Once complete, these raw bronzes were returned to the artist where he welded them back together, cleaned (chased) the casts, secured them to the base steel structure, and then used a hot patina process to embed the metal with the rich tones you see. 

The House Sparrow and Conservation:

Although the House Sparrow is abundant worldwide, there has been a sharp decline observed in Indian cities in recent years, attributed primarily to factors such as habitat loss and pesticide use.  The presence of these little beings reminds us of the importance of making conscientious choices to safeguard Earth's wildlife.
