The aardvark, also known as the African ant bear, is a nocturnal creature with a preference for termites. Its elongated claws are adept tools for excavating termite mounds, and its elusive nature makes it seldom seen in the African bush.
In this African Traveller series, Alex Sibanda honours the aardvark by portraying it as a mount for a mother and her daughters, infusing the artwork with symbolic elements that highlight resilience, adaptability, and familial unity.Painter, Siyabonga Mabaso contributes to the tribute by meticulously capturing the pigmentation patterns on the aardvark’s tail, resulting in a visually captivating representation that transcends mere depiction. The artwork symbolises an exploration of life’s journey and the tenacity required to overcome challenges.
