The Bubalus with its robust stature and 90 cm horns may appear formidable but it is no match for this Lord who quietly subdues a female kudu. Hunting parties cannot themselves manage to shackle the beast. This is a huge engraving of a Bubalus from Messak, Libya. The bubalus, which became extinct about 5,00 years ago, is thought to have been a relative of the American buffalo.The bottom figure is a a profile of a kudu antelope in Tanzania drawn in twisted perspective.
