          The designer of the Han Jüngeling trophies (Afghan hound, Saluki, Sloughi) was Speyart
          van Woerden, a sculptor from the Hague. The model for the Sloughi statue was Illa'al el
          Cid. The trophy was for the Sloughi winning “best of breed” with a rating of “excellent” at
          the annual club’s show of the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Oosterse Windhonden
          (NVOW)*; the owner had to be a member of the NVOW (Dutch Oriental Sighthound Club)
          and could win this trophy only once.

          These are very special bronzes, made in a series of 10 per breed. I know that a life sized

          one of the Sloughi statue also existed. The trophies were named after the founder of the
          NVOW, Han Jüngeling. The statue trophy was awarded from 1975 to 1985.

                                             *Editor's note: the club’s name is now “Nederlandse Vereniging voor
                                             Afghaanse Windhonden en andere windhondenrassen”. It kept the same
                                             initials NVOW.

          After the statues the Han Jüngeling trophy was continued with a selection of various
          large silver plates across the years. In 2023 it enters its 48th year of being awarded.
