One of the Big Five game animals, the Cape Buffalo is a herd animal that has never been domesticated. Otherwise known as the ‘black death’ or ‘dugga boy’, it is renowned for its aggression and temper. The buffalo’s nature is unpredictable and they are considered dangerous to people. They have unusual curved horns; the bases of each fuse together forming a shield across the forehead called a ‘boss’. Unsurprisingly, they have few predators.
Hamish has created a striking study of this impressive animal. His bronze Cape Buffalo Head sculpture brings us face to face with the impressive horns, flared nostrils and steely glare of this extraordinary animal. He commands respect. For anybody interested in African wildlife, this limited edition sculpture would make a very special gift.
