This is a genuine bronze sculpture which has been silver plated and then painstakingly detailed by hand in South Africa with lead-free black enamel paint. The sculpture is given a protective coating using an advanced technology developed in the USA which helps to prevent tarnishing.
This elegant silver-plated real bronze sculpture is produced by the traditional “lost wax” process using superior materials with careful attention to design and finishing.

The fastest land animal in the world, the cheetah is a marvel of evolution. The cheetah’s slender, long-legged body is built for speed.
Classified as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the cheetah has suffered a substantial decline in its historic range due to rampant hunting in the 20th century. Several African countries have taken steps to improve the standards of cheetah conservation. By late 2016-early 2017, the cheetah’s global population had fallen to approximately 7,100 individuals in the wild due to habitat loss, poaching, the illegal pet trade, and conflict with humans, with researchers suggesting that the animal be immediately reclassified as “Endangered” on the IUCN Red List.
