This is the first in a series of three in an African theme. Description Hollow form with fixed lid
Wood: Wild Seringa ( Berkea africana ) the lid is from the Red bushwillow
( Combretum apiculatum )
Copper wire necklace
Finish Woodoc 10 and antique wax
Size 350mm high including tusk 180mm wide at widest point
Maker Roger Courtney
The tusk is from a wart hog.
I feel I have to explain I did not kill Pumba that was done by the fellow that does not change his spots. The story is that the leopard had Pumba for a midnight snack. The farm workers discovered his remains and I was given the two big teeth/tusks.

Fantastic turning. Great shape and the void sets it off.

Keep it up.
