Ankole - Lighting and Sculptures


San Antonio, TX

"Bobby Mickler and his wife, Downie, spent 10 years living in developing countries with their 5 children, serving poor communities and creating opportunities for people to grow and flourish. In 2012, while working in South Sudan, Bobby noticed an enormous pile of Ankole/Watusi cow horns left outside the stockyard. He was surprised to see the horns discarded, since these cows are considered prized possessions in most parts of East Africa. Day after day he passed by and wondered if they could be salvaged and repurposed...maybe made into a product to sell to the international market. His goal was to create jobs and stimulate economic growth."
