Rare Carved Kudu Antelope Horn. Elephants. Africa

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures


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.
