Elephant Traveler Masterwork
Sabie Elephant Traveler
Alex Sibanda is renowned for his large "African Travelers”. This enchanting elephant reminds us of these incredible mammals, these huge creatures that possess softness and gentleness as they walk, filling one with a sense of calm. As you take a tour around this elephant, you will delight in a small monkey taking a ride on the elephant’s tail. You will also notice a basket with two rolled up pangolins that remind us of this time, to protect and take care of all that is precious to us. Bennet Zondo has sculpted a family who are entrusted to make sure these animals have safe-passage into the future.
Jabu Nene, in a palette of teals and reds has painted intricate, geometric patterns with her fine brush that she has painted in contrast to the elephant’s natural earthy tones. Her woven tapestry of pattern gives the piece a deep connection to Zulu heritage and a love for Africa.
