As usual, I’ve been busy in the studio working on new pieces. A charging elephant bull, capturing that intense moment just before a possible encounter when things could go either way for you or the elephant. This dynamic and energetic pose was a challenge, but I’m really pleased with the result and look forward to seeing it in the bronze. I am calling this one “When An Elephant Comes To Kill You.”
The dimensions are 23″L 13.5″W 14″H.

And yes, it’s time for another warthog piece! “To Run Or Not To Run.” This little guy is full of attitude, ready to either dash off if danger is real or get back to what it is that warthogs do best – keep very busy.
The dimensions are 15″L 12″W 13″H.

I was raised in the midlands of Rhodesia where this little antelope was seen every day if you were out in the bush. I was given a .22 rifle when I was still a very young boy and this animal, as far as my Dad was concerned was Royal Game and I was never allowed to hunt one. The Steen Buck is diurnal and hardly moves at night and as such was not a fellow that bothered my mothers flowers and her vegetables under the cover of darkness. The Grey Duiker that also frequented the same habitat was a different story and if he could would plague my mothers garden. This fellow is heavier than the Steen Buck and according to my Dad fair game and many of them found their way into the skinning shed. To this day I hold this little red antelope in high esteem and whenever I am in Africa it remains a real pleasure to see them and to realize that they are still wondering the grasslands of Southern Africa. I have called this piece The Grassland Pixie whose dimensions are: 9″L 5″W 11″H.
