"When I was invited to sculpt a piece for the Miniature Art Showcase for 2014 Safari Club International I was somewhat undecided as to who exactly would be the recipient of this Buffalo’s attentions.  In years gone by Arabs traded off poor quality muzzle-loader guns for slaves and ivory. I wonder how many poor souls who ventured after the Cape Buffalo with these weapons actually fated to arrive in the position as this tribesman. That he was not alone is obvious due to the spear that it is sticking out of the animal. The ferocity of the attack would have scattered his hunting companions. Here then is what I call “Misfire”. The rest speaks for itself." JT

About the Artist - John Tolmay, African Wildlife Bronze Sculptures

John Tolmay"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."
