Dionysus (2015)

$5500 USD
Named by elephant researcher Cynthia Moss, ' Dionysus' was one of the largest and most dominant bulls in the Amboseli ecosystem in southern Kenya. This sculpture represents him in his prime at approximately 50 years of age. Trophy hunters often claim that the large, older bulls are past their breeding years. In fact these bulls between the ages of 35 and 60 are at the peak of their breeding life, desired by females, and are the most successful breeders. Researchers observed 'Dionysus' in musht at the estimated age of 62, shortly before his death. ' Dionysus' has been featured in many documentaries, including the Echo of the Elephants films and the IMAX film, Africa's Elephant Kingdom.
