Senzo Ntshalintshali has sculpted this beautiful leopard rider. The African Traveler collection originally debuted in 2010, inspired by the influx of travelers for the 2010 world cup. The collection has evolved and the concept of African travelers continually inspires our artists as they hear stories about people traveling great distances through the bush. This version is inspired by travel in a post covid world, the rider and his monkey are armed with masks and spray disinfectant.
Misiwe Hadebe Ntshalinsthali has spent hours adding her trademark detail to this artwork, lovingly painting the rider and his monkey sidekick with fine brustrokes. The rider's skirt and pants are painted in deep sapphire hues with touches of coral.
