The Cape Buffalo was thrilled when the colorful Oxpecker decided to perch right there on his head and nosh on those pesky bugs that annoyed him. He felt important, appreciated, and seen. He and the Oxpecker have become the best of friends.
Cape Buffalo is made with dark annealed wire...a great deal of it, as this is one of my larger sculptures to date, weighing around 6 pounds. His horns are made of ornate coffee cup hooks (these hooks were among my first "found items" when I first started making sculptures). Between the horns, a necklace piece that looks rather like hair completes the top of the head. The ears are lily-shaped earrings which I felt had the ideal shape. The bird is a gold-colored pin with tiny little jewels in it.
This sculpture measures 12 inches long by 6.5 inches tall by 4 inches wide.
