    How we create a lifelike sculpture of your whippet


    A whippet has a thin, streamlined and athletic build, with a thin coat of hair. The ears fold back and the body is built for speed. These elements are key to creating a good sculpture of a whippet.

    Particularly the thin legs might be an isssue for sculptors, and it difficult to make a realistic whippet in a material like porcelain. Some sculptors compromise by putting the legs all the way into the body, or putting the front legs together.

    Some of these generic whippet statues are beautiful, but it is never your whippet. A good sculptor will look at the colouring, the body shape and most importantly, the face and eyes a the dog to get to the personality of your specific whippet. Arty Lobster does all this work, but at a fraction of the cost of a traditional sculptor.

    Dog similar to whippets

    Whilst most of this page focuses on whippets, almost all our comments will also apply to similar sighthounds like greyhounds, deerhounds, wolfhounds and saluki. We also do lurcher figurines, longdogs and whippet cross breeds, and most of the comments below will equally apply to these dogs.

    Whippet Cross

    Many whippets are not purebreed, but mixed with one or more other breeds to create a whippet cross (or longdog when crossed with another sighthound like saluki or greyhound). At Arty Lobster, we love cross-breeds and lurchers, because this is where our attention to detail and personal modelling works best. We know what to expect with a whippet, but we will look at the pictures you give us a make sure that we really are modelling your specific dog.

    Whippet memorial sculptures

    If you have recently lost your whippet, we know how souldestroying this can be.

    As we can work with your pictures, we are able to create a memorial sculpture of your whippet even after your dog has passed away. In fact, many of our sculptures are ordered by people who want to remember their wonderful companion, and you can read the testimonial about Bonnie who was a Whippet Cross..
