From the lightly jargoned press release:
Replicating the many facets of animal character, Mackie’s work exudes the powerful yet poignant juxtapositions of the animal kingdom, capturing the duplicity of both predator and matriarch. Mackie’s three elephant sculptures exemplify this as they show three different aspects to elephant behaviour. The sculpture of the fighting bulls is being cast as a unique one-off in silver, and is one of the largest silver sculptures to be cast this year.
