The artist is Laurence Broderick.
The enlargement process was carried out by casting a model of the bull in plaster from the original maquette mould, and then slicing it (like a loaf of bread). Each slice was measured and calculations were made to enlarge each slice. The new dimensions were projected onto sheets of polystyrene of the scaled-up thickness. The outline of the image was marked out and the waste cut away. The enlarged slices were then stuck together and shaped using files. Layers of fibreglass, resin and plaster followed. The finer details were added before the finished Bull was smoothed down and polished, ready for sandcasting. Bronze is poured into the mould of The Bull at Pangolin Editions Foundry in Gloucestershire. The model for this sculpture, Bull Maquette, measuring 46 cm in length, is available in a limited edition of twenty-five and also 80 cm in length in a limited edition of ten.
