A Harrop Historical 100 Limited Edition
Introducing our new Old English Sheepdog 'Gruagach the Hairy', a Celtic standard bearer, and second figurine in our Harrop Historical 100 series.
From around 750 BC to 12 BC, the Celts were the most powerful people in central and northern Europe. There were many tribes of Celts, speaking a vaguely common language.
The word Celt comes from the Greek word, Keltoi, which means barbarians and is properly pronounced as "Kelt".
The Celtic standard, or carnyx, was also a type of bronze trumpet and was used in warfare, probably to incite troops to battle and intimidate opponents.
A Limited Edition of only 100 figurines, and to mark its provenance, each exclusive piece will be hand numbered on the base with a unique edition number and will come complete with a Certificate of Authenticity!
The Harrop Historical 100’s
Here at the Harrop Sculpting Studio we have been diligently working on the famous and infamous figures from Ancient Briton and these illustrious Isles with all of its defenders and conquerors that have evolved and moulded this fine nation.
We have chosen our breed cast very carefully making sure that each figurine harbours a true sense of irony, bringing each piece to life.
The first in our special Harrop Historical 100 Limited Edition Series is our Bearded Collie as King Caractacus, who stealthily harried the Roman invaders at every turn. He is now joined by 'Gruagach the Hairy' our Old English Sheepdog Celtic Standard Bearer.
Following from this pair of Britons we will be releasing Hengist the Angle, or rather our 'Anglish Bull Terrier', whom along with his brother Horsa, represent the beginnings of English Saxon rule from 449 AD. Next up will be our 'Britonish' Bulldog, who with be in full Battle King Regalia as Vortigern the last powerful Briton before the grip of the Saxons began to close.
The script for this series is incredibly exciting indeed and will cover Romans, Vikings and also the Normans who were huge players in our history. Not forgetting the mighty 'Britonish' Bulldog who with be in full Battle King Regalia as Vortigern the last powerful Briton before the grip of the Saxons began to close its grip.
