Here is a African wood carving depicting a hunter returning with his kill. Balanced on the figures head is a baby elephant with his legs bound in rope. The hunter also has a goat on a sling around his body and a sack on his back containing several birds. The figure is carrying a flintlock musket in his right hand. Under his foot there is a beetle scurrying away.

On the bottom of the figure carved into the wood it reads "By B.U.O"

The figure dates to around 1870.
