Bring a piece of National Geographic history into your home or office with “Together” by Brad Oldham, a limited-edition sculpture inspired by the work of National Geographic photographers, filmmakers, and conservationists Dereck and Beverly Joubert. This cast-bronze sculpture captures a powerful male lion in a tender moment with his playful cub. Each sculpture is signed by the artist and numbered, and arrives with a certificate of authenticity, a custom hardcover book that details the story behind the artwork, and a piece of the original cast mold. The original life-size casting sits outside of National Geographic’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.

From public community spaces to private homes, sculptor Brad Oldham has elevated many environments worldwide. Installations from Las Vegas to Azerbaijan keep Oldham pushing for new ways to engage with fine art sculpture based in unique stories of people and their environments. In 2011, the Texas Society of Architects recognized Oldham with their prestigious Artisan Awards and he was heralded as the Artist/Craftsman of the Year by the American Institute for Architects. In 2010, the Americans for the Arts included his $1.4 million installation "The Traveling Man" in its prestigious Year in Review program. His commitment to breaking the paradigm for how sculpture is seen and sold and his desire to provide an opportunity for artists to explore the medium of sculpture led to the founding of Pure Sculpture.
