When Miguel @signatus started sculpting, it was absolutely evident his huge talent and I confess I got quite excited to get one of his figures. I already owned at least one figure from Harriet, Joan and Anna and I really wanted Miguel's aurochs.
It was not possible because I've never found a job anymore but a good time later, when Miguel released the new superb 2019 Aurochs version, he decided, to give me a copy of one of the earlier models! affraid
For more I insisted it was not fair, Miguel didn't give me any chance and sent this fabulous figure to me. It is a memorable gesture from this very talented Artist.
I'd suggest that you check other wonderful models from Miguel on this section of the forum. I will only link one more, this Monumental YAK!
You can find his figures on
http://www.likaonmodels.com/
Not this one but his more recent creations that are even more spectacular!

It is my only aurochs figure, I am so happy that I have it but as always, I took so long to present it because you know how much I dislike my pictures, especially when presenting something so special.
Though, I promised Kosta to show my aurochs and here it is.

Here a size comparison with the Papo European lynx

As the Artist is Spanish, here is a comparison with an old vintage Spanish bull figure.

Thanks for watching and many thanks to Miguel for such a enormous gift! cheers

This is a very special topic !
It`s made by Roger, presented with very  fine photos ( even if Roger doesn`t think like that Very Happy )
and it shows a very special gift, of model made by very special, tallented hands :)

This is a very nice model. We all know the second version of Aurochs, made by Miguel, which is even more spectacular ( one of my foavorite Miguel`s models) , but this one is wonderful too, with peaceful, but majestic pose.

It is very generous from Miguel , to make this wonderful gift to you Roger. You deserve it :)
cheers Applause

That's such a nice figure. I really need to get more of the boutique models...it's getting harder for me to find 'common' figures that I need for my collection.

Thanks Kosta, Miguel, Susanne, Fernando, Isidro, Alain and Sean! cheers

This topic is also a kind of self-therapy once some little collecting misfortunes that happened recently, are absolutely nothing when compared with the many gestures of kindness I have received allover these years.
My collection has models like Anna's bongo, Anna's takin, Harriet's giant anteater, Miguel's aurochs, etc., etc. all as gifts from the great Artists and great persons of this community. I really feel a fortunate guy and I want to thank it to all of you! cheers
