Artist's Description

This Gemsbok was captured in a remote and arid area in Northern Namibia, called Etosha in Africa.

The gemsbok or gemsbuck (Oryx gazella) is a large antelope in the Oryx genus. It is native to the arid regions (for example the Kalahari Desert) of southern Africa, but formerly some authorities included the East African Oryx as a subspecies. Its current population in South Africa is 373,000.
The name “gemsbok” in English is derived from Afrikaans gemsbock, itself derived from the Dutch name of the male chamois, gemsbok. Although there are some superficial similarities in appearance (especially in the facial pattern), the chamois and the oryx are not closely related. The usual pronunciation in English is /ˈɡɛmzbɒk/.

Gemsbok are about 1.2 metres (3 ft 11 in) at the shoulder, and males can weigh between 220–250 kilograms (490–550 lb) while females weigh 180–210 kilograms (400–460 lb).
