A bronze of Queen Elizabeth II Trooping the Colour 2022

$ 105,000
  • Description
    A bronze of Queen Elizabeth II Trooping the Colour by Amy Goodman and Vivien Mallock, 2022. This equestrian statuette was created for Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee. Riding the famous mare Burmese, side saddle, she is shown as Colonel-in-Chief of the Grenadier Guards, with a specially designed cap and hackle. Signed 1/12 A.R. Goodman Vivien Mallock. English 2022.

    Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. The Monarch leads other members of the Royal Family and a cavalcade of over 200 horses to inspect 1,400 parading foot soldiers and 400 uniformed musicians. Queen Elizabeth attended the ceremony on horseback from 1947 (as Princess Elizabeth) until 1986. Initially, she rode her father, George VI’s horses. However, her most loyal partner was the black mare, Burmese, a gift from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The Queen rode Burmese for eighteen consecutive years until the mare’s eventual retirement. From then onwards she attended in a carriage.

    Amy Goodman, S.E.A, is a sculptor and portrait artist based in Hampshire. Twice winner of the prestigious B.S.A.T. Best Sculpture Award, she has sculpted notable and varied public commissions, including the Romsey War Horse, the Arborfield Horses, Pegasus & Bellerophon for the 16 Air Assault Brigade, The Aldershot Airborne Soldier, Florence Nightingale, the Gurkha Memorial Project and the brave military dog, Treo 63DM.

    Vivian Mallock is familiar with commissions for royal events, having created pieces for a hat trick of Jubilees. Her 12 foot high bronze of the prow of the Royal Yacht Britannia, with the future represented by a small boy seated at its base, was installed by Portsmouth City Council to commemorate the Golden Jubilee in 2002, while a portrait roundel for Winchester was created for the 2012 Diamond Jubilee. Please note that a solid silver version of this sculpture, assayed for the Jubilee, is also available.
