Bronze Africa ‘When Shadows Come to Life’

The Greater Kudu’s best defense is it’s ability to hide. To do this it uses shadows offered by the bush and terrain where it is found. A Kudu will take refuge on the top of a tree-covered termite mound and will allow a predator to approach within a few yards. They will remain motionless and allow the predator to pass by within a few yards. However if the Kudu suspects that he or she has been spotted they will break cover usually giving vent to an alarm call in the form of a throaty bark as they smash out of the cover. I have tried to capture this behaviour in this sculpture realizing at the same time that to sculpt the dense cover in bronze would be problematical. Anyone who has hunted the Greater Kudu will know exactly what I am trying to portray here.
