The hunter and the Princess by Tendekayi Tandi

The story depicted in the sculpture is that of a hunter who caught a pangolin and is handing it over to King's daughter. It is a sacred animal and an endangered specie. In the old days the hunter will take to the Chief or King but now its legally protected and so must be handed over to the National Parks.
