It is certainly possible to commission a statue for less than £50k. |
The Co-op have looked at a number of sculptors and have also received approaches too.
The challenge is to make sure we truely do any statue of Danny justice, whilst achieving the best value.
The sculptor we have in mind really is top class and has been commissioned by leading corporates, universities, colleges, charities and has work in a leading UK museum. Their portfolio is amazing.
We will provide more information about the sculptor - and provide sketches, once they have met with the Bergara family and also when we are a bit further on with fund raising.
With a project like this, it is critical that the risk is managed. The Co-op and HTH cannot afford to get a statue of Danny Bergara wrong.
Yes, there are sculptors who will work for less than £50k, but the quality and attention to detail just isn't there. Raising £50k is a massive challenge, but we want to ensure this tribute is done properly.
Anyway, hope you can help with a donation!
