"Nyati is the Swahili word for Buffalo. The cape buffalo is also called the “widow maker” or “black death” in the hunting world. This beast is known for circling back and attacking its pursuer in an ambush and fatally injuring them almost 50% of the time. In fact my friend and fellow artist Simon Combes was one of its victims in December 2004. While their menacing disposition has made them one of Africa’s most dangerous animals they also have passive moments, especially when enjoying the rich sweetgrass after the first rains." - John Banovich, Artist
