The cape, or African, buffalo may reach 7 ft in length, weigh more than 1,500 lb, and reach a height of 5 ft at the shoulder. Cape buffalo gather in herds of up to a thousand animals. They are aggressive and powerfully built, and can easily fend off the attack of a lion.

About the artist:
The Improved Arts Metal Sculpture Project was started in 1986 by five brothers. Having discovered their artistic talents, they founded the group to depict African natural history through metalwork and to make a better living. Old tin cans and other scraps of metal from businesses in the industrial area of Harare are turned into these delightful sculptures by these artists using snips, pliers, and hammers.
