"This is a flight of fancy for me. I attempted to catch the power of the animal to show it’s natural belligerence and at the same time not to detract from the fact that it can also have a gentle nature. I wonder how close I have come to achieving that, if at all? Without anything but pictures to help the sculpture along I can only guess that it is as close to half life-size as my eye can ascertain from seeing them in the field. I have inscribed along the base of the neck: “May God Save This Creature From Extinction”." JT

About the Artist - John Tolmay, African Wildlife Bronze Sculptures
"I live in that head-space between past and present, translating scenes and images that are vividly recorded in my mind into waxes and clays. I use various foundries around the States to expertly cast them into the pieces of art that grace homes, studios, trophy rooms and offices around the world. While being an artist and a hunter I am also personally committed to Conservation. I started what is known as the “Nyawa Pilot Project” in Zambia.
The aim of this project is to achieve a better balance for rural people and their resources. Gradually the slow process of change is gaining momentum and it is my sincere hope that the concept of Community Based Wildlife Management will cease to be something that is only spoken about and become policy in the near future."
