It’s funny how things work out. This sculpture evolved from the standing Wildebeest commission. I didn’t have enough wax for the big one, so I tried out a smaller version, to have a look at the physiology. When the wax arrived, I decided to evolve this standing figure into a leaping wildebeest from the migration in the Masai Mara Kenya.
That is such a dramatic scene - great herds of wildebeest forging the river Mara - leaping wildly into the rushing waters, with huge crocodiles lying in wait. There is such a frenzied wildness about this scene.
The body length of this bronze is 26cms, with a height that is approximately 18cms. This animal will be leaping off some rocks, (which will be the only place where the bronze is anchored). The rocks will be on a heavy cube of granite, so the effect will be a spectacular leap into the void. I really want to represent the leap these wildebeests make when they launch into the Mara river.
