About this artwork

The Hoopoe Leaves wallpaper by Cole & Son is the inspiration for Pomotso Mafura's intricately sculpted candlesticks. A  large female praying mantis interacts with her smaller mate amongst the petals of the protea bloom while fat beetles scramble through the undergrowth in search of prey.

Eye-catching patterns, meticulously painted by Zinhle Nene, cover the candlesticks painted in a soft colour palette of greens and pinks with the subtle use of gold lustre  giving a sense of luxury to the candle holders.


Made by Pomotso Mafura and painted by Zinhle Nene

Dimensions: H 27cm; L 18cm; W 9cm

Ardmore's mark of authenticity

For collectors to identify an original Ardmore work of art, please look for the lowercase 'a' that is stamped into the bottom of the ceramic pieces, as well as a hand-painted mark.
