    Default some more creative pictures

    A very good collection of historical photo's, jerome, and i appreciate it a lot
    I'm glad we've got a small slice of history all together here as a 'collection'

    It's of a time long ago and young ones need to be educated in respecting the reality of the what/how in the hunting field of days gone by,the same as what is in the here and now today.

    Unfortunately nowadays the small one's grew up in the electronic and technological age of make believe where people are super humans and can fly ect.

    A lot of us can not give our grand children [time/distance/work] as many real hunting and bush experiences as we would wish, but we can tell them of our hero's of old as portrait in your hunting pictures.

    At least these pictures/art can be a starting point to stimulate the imagination and love for nature of these youngsters with adventure in their veins!

    Well, if nothing else, its good realistic art of these magnificent animals [elephants and not futuristic like robots or aliens!],and make for good adventure stories to mould the yougsters imaginations.

    18kt Gold "Shawu" Elephant Brooch depicting the South African bull Elephant Shawu, with diamond melee tusks and ruby eyes. Shawu is one of "The Magnificent Seven" bull Elephants whose tusks and skull is on display at Elephant Hall in Kruger National Park. He can be easily identified by his pincer-like tusks, which are the longest on record in Southern Africa.

    I'm a fan of wildlife art, thanks for sharing this painting of the Magnificent Seven.

    The photograph of this woman hunter, apparently taken around 1907, was entitled "The Christening".

    I think you're right... the tusks are also freshly cut out.

    It s an old european tradition, when you kill your first animal a fellow hunter draws a cross on your forehead with the animal s blood.

    It is called the Christening.

    I think you guys are right, Makes sense.

    I was having a hard time ID'ing the body part being used. I guess that could be an Aorta attached to the heart.
    For some reason I expected it to be much bigger from an Elephant that size.

    that is what i thought about the size it should be a lot bigger. that is why i thought maybe the brain with the spinal column being held in his hand....???? but it is definitely her being blooded with some part of its insides .

    Capstick, in "Death in the Dark Continent" P133-144, probably has done the best research that I have found relating to the taking of the largest tusks in front of the doors on Zanzabar. His research is a little different from the story above. I am not a big fan of Capstick but have not noticed a major problem in his research.

    The last paragraph above about being able to view the tusks in the British Museum of Natural History basement is a direct quote from his book (p143-144). I have tried to contact the museum via email twice, 2007 and 2010 to arrange a direct viewing and they have never responded to my email. Frustrating. In walking in and asking them directly they have told me that the largest tusks they have are on display in the mammal exhibit. There is no information on the exhibit floor about them being the largest of all time or about their weights. I have looked at them and don't see how they can be 200+ lbs.(Not that I'm an expert) 150 yes, if you told me they were 180 I might believe you but 200+??? I have attached a picture of the tusks from the museum in 2007. Has any one with experience with big elephants seen these tusks? Do you think they are the 200+ lb tusks? Capstick in his book said that the left tusk was splitting when he reviewed the tusks circa 1982. The left tusks in the following picture looks like it is splitting at the inside base. Has anyone from AH seen the tusks in the basement of the building? The tusks in the museum? What are your thoughts?
