Leopard and Elephant Yin Yang
Thulani Mntungwa has sculpted this yin and yang of the masculine and feminine energies represented by the leopard and the maternal elephant. The somersaulting forms create a deftly balanced artwork.
Virginia Xaba has chosen violet and aqua tones and added very intricate detailing inspired by Xhosa patterns on the elephant's hide. The frosted tone of the leopard represents the opposite to the maternal warm energy of the elephant.
