The base is solid African Mahogany hand made by me here in the shop. I could not find and large sheets of solid mahogany so I used 13/16 solid boards and hand planed and jointed them to create the base. The mask I had imported from RSA and is a traditional South African mask. Behind the mask is a small LED light which when turned on will make it glow. The buffalo is removable and the base sits on casters for ease of movement. The buff himself is posed sneaking through brush with a left turn and eyes hard left. John had also requested a slightly open mouth which I was able to build usinging an artificial jaw set. I hope you enjoy and I would like to thank @johnnyblues for the opportunity to bring his buffalo and our vision back to life.
