Ebony Visions The African Kings #EbonyVisions #Art. Created as a companion piece to The African Queen, the kings complete the royal set. Retired June 2007. Once the Heirs, the two African Kings walk in unison across the great Savannah surveying their domain. With staff firmly in hand and dressed in a gilded violet robe, the King shows stately presence as the leader of his Kingdom. With strong hands he grips the leather leash connecting him to the King of beasts.
