About the artwork

Rose Draper's art dog

This girl glitters and sparkles like a galaxy, with over 13,500 diamantés across her surface, barely hinting at how much light a beautiful Guide Dog adds to human lives. I wanted to use tactile and visually rich material to stimulate touch and sight — to add striking value — so that we pause to appreciate these selfless creatures. The name Coco had been scrawled by a previous owner onto her metal plate, and so remains. Help celebrate the Year of the Dog, and reward Coco’s shining service with a gold coin.

THIS ART DOG HAD BEEN SOLD AT THE ONLINE AUCTION.
