Bronze Aardvark Sculpture

Night Shift

An Aardvark comes of age at only six months old and wanders out into the world alone. This bronze piece illustrates a solitary mother’s protective instincts as she prepares her offspring for a life of digging.

The artist, having spent time as a game ranger, aims to create awareness for African wildlife and how they reproduce in such a harsh landscape. This particular animal burrows underground to find shelter, often making holes in termite mounds to feed.

The unusual features of the Aardvark make for an interesting artistic study and even more interesting dinner conversation. Display this piece in your home by enquiring with South Africa Online ®.

Fun Arrdvark Fact: Aardvarks have robust, powerful nailed claws that are perfect for digging and treading through the underbrush. Their front legs only have four digits, while their back legs have five.
