Elephant and Leopard Vase
Molapo Mokoena has artfully sculpted this vase with art deco-inspired fronds forming the top of the vase. The duo of elephants with trunks a-trumpet while a leopard rears up between the two. Nozipho Ntshalintshali has chosen the sensuous orchid to fill the bulbous shape. And on the skirted bottom rim she has used the hexagonal design of tortoiseshell in vibrant yellows and greens. Her colours remind us of the sweet fragrances of the first spring flowers.
