Lastly, Lewis’ Newfoundland dog, Seaman, shows his unquestioning devotion to his master. Limited edition of 300, each 15″ bronze is a separate work of art. Cast in the ancient lost-wax process, each has its individual hand-finished mold. After its 300th casting the mold will be destroyed, leaving the original investors with the only sculptures from this edition.
