Alfred Russel Wallace

Rodney Munday's sculpture of Alfred Russel Wallace, the famous naturalist, was unveiled in Hertford on 19th October 2014 by Dr. George Beccaloni of the Natural History Museum.  The Gift, a public commission for Western Sussex Hospital Trust was unveiled in Chichester and Worthing hospitals in April that year.  In December 2015 a  casting of his sculpture of St. Edmund of Abingdon was installed at St. Edmund's College, Cambridge, where architectural work is still being completed around it (see Newsletter ). Other castings of this work can be found at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford, and St. Edmund's College, Ware. A sculpture of  Europa & the Bull was commissioned by the multinational pharmaceutical company, Wyeth, as a symbol of its European commitment in 2005. In 2009 he was shortlisted to produce a monumental statue of St. George & the Dragon for Perth Cathedral in Australia, and private works are to be found internationally. Copies of  Daphne are sited at a chateau in the south of France, at Sanibel Island in Florida and in California. 

Current public commissions on which he is working are for a sculpture for the pillars which link St. Andrew's Minster, Plymouth, with the city (see Newsletter); and a bust for Richard Hale School, Hertford, of its founder to mark the 400th anniversary of the school in 2017.

Although Rodney is happiest working with the human form, many of his commissions are for animals, and he has acquired a considerable reputation as an animalier both in the UK and in France where he has won several awards for his work. One of his most recent private commissions was for a life-sized fallow deer.

Rodney also runs painting holidays from a beautiful mountain house in the Pyrenees, which won ITV's May the Best House Win, screened on 4th October 2012. These have recently been covered in an article in the journal French Entrée (see https://www.frenchentree.com/featured-community-posts/creative-retreat-in-france/ )
