As an avid hunter of 23 years, I can’t help but respect and admire the object of pursuit in all its grandeur and majesty, and the kudu is such a creature. Always alert, this large and graceful animal can simply vanish in a split second, navigating the choking entanglement of an acacia forest…. without a sound! It was this prowess that inspired “Escaping Lebombo”.
The Lebombo Mountains are a true relic… a scar… testament to Antarctica being torn from our shores, and its 250 million years in existence, have left a sheer and treacherous barrier, overpowering its surrounding foothills. It’s along this cycad clad precipice, that this particular kudu made its decent. Each step was potentially fatal yet its majesty and grace was carried with such an articulated finesse… leaving our encounter, brief, yet unforgettable.
Escaping Lebombo is an original Bronze in an edition of 15, of which this is the first! It's mounted upon leather bound granite and weighs in the region of 35kg (77lbs). In addition to the sculpture, the buyer will receive a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
