Shoulder - slight turn to right
African Wildlife Artistry - South Africa
This is a fantastic example of the Lechwe antelope. Shoulder mount with slight head turn to the right.
Lechwe stand 90 to 100 cm at the shoulder and weigh from 70 to 120 kg. They are golden brown with white bellies. Males are darker in colour, but general hue varies depending on subspecies. The long, spiral-structured horns are vaguely lyre-shaped, they are found only in males. The hind legs are somewhat longer in proportion than in other antelopes, to ease long-distance running in marshy soil.
