The Egyptians often hunted gazelles and other types of antelope especially in the regions of Upper Egypt and Nubia. Young gazelles were sometimes kept as pets and some mummified examples have been found in tombs. This set contains two males gazelles (with separate horns), two females and two young. The figures have integral bases so separate plastic bases are not provided. These figures were sculpted by Leandro Ventic and painted by Paul Sanderson.
