Vintage African Impala Antelope Sculpture

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An exceptional and not surprisingly elegant vintage carved African sculpture of an Impala Antelope, circa 1950's. Painted in segments of red, white and black pigment, creates a dramatic look. Permanently mounted on a steel pedestal and then loosely set atop a wood base for greater drama and height.

There are signs of wear and tear and breakage consistent with age and use, but this sculpture remains a beautiful work of art.
