The secretary bird is a very tall mainly terrestrial bird of prey of the African savannah.
This striking piece is being offered for sale through Guruve by a private collector located in Johannesburg, South Africa. It was purchased prior to 1988 by the seller's father from Tom Blomefield, owner of Tengenenge.
The piece is signed along the base with John's trademark signature.
The piece has a couple of scratches, but these merely reinforce its authenticity. John's superficial style neatly captures the essence of this quirky bird.
The piece is in South Africa and will be shipped from there; payment can be in US dollars or SA rand equivalent.
