Stunning photographs show the making of Britannia's new bronze statue

This week our new Royal Yachtsman bronze statue arrived at Britannia along the red carpet! This is now his new home, proudly stationed at the foot of the Royal Brow as part of the welcoming team for guests at the Royal Yacht's exclusive private events.

The statue was made at Powderhall Bronze based in Leith, Edinburgh. Established in 1989, Powderhall Bronze is Scotland's premier fine art foundry with expert staff carefully chosen for their training and specialist skills. The process is fascinating and the team at Powderhall expertly looked after the statue's creation, from the original artwork to installation on Britannia's quayside.

Our Photographer in Residence, Ruth Armstrong, chartered the craftsmanship that went into the making of this incredibly lifelike statue. She has put together a range of photographs to share the journey with us. Click on the photographs below to start viewing the gallery of photos.
