Not familiar with the African Topi? That's OK, not a lot of people are. Topis are fast, but not as fast as some of the more well-known African antelope. One could argue that topis are the most beautiful of African antelopes, but that's very subjective. The animal’s coat is stunningly beautiful in shimmering dark reds and black. It has impressive horns and great detailing throughout. For its beauty, detail and stunning color, this piece has been given our taxidermy quality rating of Premier.
