Loerie Bird Urns
Betty Ntshingila is renowned for her bird sculptures, she has perched the beautiful Loerie atop these Grecian-shaped urns. Her pair of loeries evokes a feeling of intimacy and gentleness, and the cacophony of birds and branches around the body of the urn fills the eye with delicate forms.
The feather patterning that Mama Ntombela has added around the base of the urns mirrors the loerie’s feathers. Each bird is painted with the finest detail, and the texture that has been sculpted into the clay is emphasized with her fine brush strokes.
