The Sichuan takin (Budorcas taxicolor tibetana) is a subspecies of takin, a wild caprine that lives in Tibet and some Chinese provinces arround.
It is a vulnerable species that share its habitat with the well known giant panda.
The figure is a extraordinary handmade representation of this animal and it was presented online by Ana in August 2010. It was originally a request from Christophe, our golden monkey. cheers
For the first time Ana's sculptures were replicated and it gave the chance of many collectors being the proud owners of Ana's sculptures.
I arrived in the forum some days after it and I remember comtemplating it silently as a Tibetan Budist monk!
As everybody knows that Dalai Lama is a spiritual leader of Tibet, everybody should know that Santa Claus is from Poland and not from Lapland! santa flower
With such an extraordinary Christmas gift is easy to reach the Nirvana state! silent
Many thanks Ana! flower flower I love you cheers

Below the usual poor pictures but you can find lots of nice pictures in the forum. But those are from my takin! Laughing
Below also with Papo yak for size comparison, the takin is a 1:22 scale as usual in Ana's works!

Laughing pale I hope you are better!
Carolynn, probably you already know this, during a long time taxonomists believed that takins were close related with the muskox, but recent genetic studies are showing that the closest living animals are wild sheep! Laughing
