Join This Man on a Safari to Sculpt Animals in the Wild

In the Chyulu Hills of Kenya, master sculptor Mark Coreth is on safari to capture one of the area's largest elephants in clay. Working with extraordinary speed, Coreth sculpts small-scale field studies as a "three-dimensional form of sketching" for completing his finished works back in the studio. His magnificent portraits convey the movement, speed, and violence of wildlife and have made him internationally recognized as a master sculptor of the animal in motion. In this spectacular short from Will Farrell, join Coreth and his local guide on a "sculptural safari" and watch his creative process unfold.
