What an awesome, huge figure, it's apparently just a little smaller than the Wildlife Wonders African Elephant! :o :) And this is a resin piece, too? While it's maybe not the most accurate rendition of an African Bush Elephant the texture and the matt finished colouration with all the drybrushing makes it an excellent piece. :)

Very nice elephant! Although I think it's not really big, it seems more like Vanishing Wild elephant calf size, maybe little bigger yes? What are dimensions?  :)
It's nice and I love the photos, thank You for sharing! :D

....... What are dimensions?  :) .......

28 cm long in a direct line from tip of the trunk to end of the tail.
The forehead ends at 14 cm height :).

Ah! :) For comparison, the highest point of the forehead of the WW African elephant is 187 mm, so that one is still a bit larger. But for a Preiser resin piece 14 cm height are gigantic!
