A Harrop Historical 100 Limited Edition
Introducing our new White Bull Terrier as Hengist, the third figurine in our Harrop Historical 100 series.
Hengist is an important figure in shaping the history of our nation and, along with his brother Horsa, is said to have led the Angles, Saxons and Jutes in their invasion of Britain in the 5th century.
According to early sources, Hengist and Horsa arrived in Britain at Ebbsfleet on the Isle of Thanet. For a time, they served as mercenaries for Vortigern, King of the Britons, but later they turned against him (British accounts have them betraying him in the Treachery of the Long Knives). Horsa was killed fighting the Britons, but Hengist successfully conquered Kent, becoming the first of the Jutish kings of Kent and the beginnings of the Anglo-Saxon rule of England.
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.
