Known as the gardener’s friend, the hedgehog sculptures come in three sizes, and can make the perfect family when placed together. Place one as a centrepiece on outdoor furniture or have a group peering out of the bushes. Alternatively, place one indoors in a quiet and peaceful space, just as they like to be in their natural habitat.
These cute and slow-moving creatures are often found hiding in grasslands across South Africa. Bring them out of hiding and into your home or garden as a standout feature. Small pieces of metal are individually welded to create the hedgehog’s iconic spiny body and the finest detail can be found in their cute curved ears. Hedgehog sculptures look appealing when arranged in a group on a decking, in a front garden or in the corner of a living or dining room. If choosing to place simply one hedgehog sculpture in your home, be sure to make it the centre of attention on a feature dining or coffee table or perhaps poking out of a television cabinet.
Hedgehogs are easily recognised by their spines which are hollow hairs made stiff with keratin. Long, thick pieces of metal are used to make the distinctive spiny body a standout feature on the medium hedgehog sculpture. Their small, pointed faces bring a smile to passers-by and their perfectly formed eyes and ears add to their charm. As hedgehogs are sleepy animals, why not place one in a bedroom setting to allow him to sleep to his heart’s content. Or, place a group outdoors near a hedgerow as if foraging for food as they would in the wild.
Large hedgehog sculptures have friendly faces with a pointed snout, beady eyes and tiny ears. The quill of the hedgehog is brought to life with individually welded strips of metal. Known as the gardener’s friend, the large hedgehog sculpture would make the perfect gift for those who enjoy gardening as a hobby. Place one as a centrepiece on outdoor furniture or have a group peering out of the bushes. Alternatively, place one indoors in a quiet and peaceful space, just as they like to be in their natural habitat.
