In African mythology, the antelope symbolizes vivacity, velocity, beauty and visual sharpness. The magnificent and graceful sable antelope has large ringed horns which arch backward, making it a strong fighter able to defend itself against most predators, including lions.

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.
