In many cultures the bat is seen as symbolic of good fortune, or even of immortality. Because of its skilful ability to navigate at night it has also been thought of as a symbol of keen intelligence. Bats are also important in their ecosystems for pollinating flowers and dispersing seeds; many tropical plants depend entirely on bats for these services.
Cast by hand in frost-proof casting stone our Cotswold Bat is suitable for indoors or year round outdoor display. He is 12cm wide, 28cm high, and weighs approximately 1.5kg. The colour is Cotswold sandstone. The Cotswold Bat is cast with a strong hook for secure display.
All our statues and ornaments are cast and coloured by hand in our workshop in Zeeland, the Netherlands.
Actual colours can differ from the photos. Because all our ornaments are made and finished by hand no two are exactly alike.
