Project Description

Heading for Water – sculpture of a male and female southern Nyala

The Nyala are very colourful animals. The male and the female are very distinctive, the one being almost purple and the female almost like a different species. As such it is very difficult to depict them as being the same species without the use of colour which I don’t particularly like doing. I have tried to show the two of them so that they are extremely visible, hence the fact that one is above the other as though they are going down a steep bank to a stream below.
