McGlaun, Bill, set of ten African big game world records. In 1991, Sporting Classics Magazine commissioned renowned wildlife sculptor Bill McGlaun to create a set of bronzes depicting the world record trophies from nine African big game species, along with the iconic zebra. These bronzes were cast and then polychrome painted by hand to bring out the beauty and unique features of each animal. Only 11 complete sets were sold (along with approximately 25 individual pieces), and a 12th set, this one, was created for the director of the project.
