Africa, Cradle of Mankind

Kerry’s latest work looks at Africa, a continent he has long been fascinated by; the people, the Art, the flora and fauna.

Impalas are beautiful creatures of the savannah. They can run fast and leap high, up to 3 times as high as they are tall.

Kerry is sculpting a graceful impala. At an impressive 2 metres  tall and covered in African symbols, written and pictorial, Kerry reminds us that Africa is the cradle of mankind.

Initially sculpting in clay, Kerry created an exquisite frieze depicting impalas drinking. He has also painstakingly drawn symbols and writing that along with the frieze will be cast in bronze and cover the impala.

This is a challenging piece to create by hand.
