Friesian Calf

This fabulous bronze calf is in the courtyard of Kings Manor. It is the work of Sally Arnup a leading animalier sculptor who lives just outside York. She manages to convey life and movement in a very special way. This calf looked like he had just stood up on wobbly legs for the first time, his coat still wet and matted from being born.


  1. Not heard of Sally Arnup prior this, despite that she lives not too far from here. I love this kind of sculpture, much better in my view than a lot of the modern stuff, that in my eyes could be anything. Paul at Leeds in Yorkshire daily photography

  2. Love the sculpture and the dappled light on the building behind.
