When I received a commission for making a hartebeest more than a year ago I was not sure about the subspecie I was going to sculpt. Thanks to the collector made the commission I will be able to make copies, and he was who ask finally, for making a coke's hartebeest or kongoni (Alcelaphus buselaphus cokii).
It's amazing the different kind of horns that several hartebeest subspecies have, and all of them are really beautiful. The heads are also really special: big and 'long'
One month ago I finished with the sculpting, mould is made and in a month (more or less) copies will be available. There's the first 'official' picture (not new for my followers in facebook, but first time here). I hope you like it:

Joan, you did it again! It is a very recognizable work, everything looks perfect, even the traditional character of these creatures. Very Happy
It looks already very realistic to me, I wonder how it will look after being painted. Your talent is precious! cheers
