Genuine Wildebeest Horn and Porcupine Quill Combo Table Lamp with Fitting on Stand

The wildebeest a subspecies of the antelope, has a bull-like appearance. There are two known species of wildebeest, both of which are native to Africa;

The wildebeest  or "wild beast", earned this Afrikaans name for the menacing appearance;

The changing African seasons mean the wildebeest must migrate south in the winter, so the wildebeest can continue to graze on grass. Thousands of wildebeest all tend to migrate at once creating a wildebeest stampede; 

The wildebeest is a primary source of prey for many large African mammals, that often pick out the weaker wildebeest from the outside of the herd. Wildebeest generally grow to around 1.5 tall but are relatively defenceless against dominant, carnivorous predators such as lions and crocodiles;

This table lamp uses porcupine quills and the horns of a wildebeest and comes with fitting;

This piece is plated;

The horns that form part of this piece were legally obtained; 

A very unique and stunning antique piece.

Made in Southern Africa.
