Rare Carved Kudu Antelope Horn. Elephants. Africa
Kudus – the largest species of antelope – are woodland antelopes that are found throughout eastern and southern Africa. Unfortunately, their populations are dwindling.
The horns of a male Kudu have 2.5 twists and – when straightened – the average length is 47” . . . up to a record length of 74”. This horn is approximately 41+ inches.
What makes this so special is that a herd of elephants is carved in the horn.
There is a small section that either has a missing section or an opening was carved completely though the horn. I have tried to show that section in the photos although it took me a while to find that section.
Regardless, the horn – with its wood base – is quite old and in good condition. It would make a stunning addition to your east/south African mask or weapon collection.
Very rare carved horn. For the Serious Collector.
