Elephant and Crocodile Tureen
This storytelling tureen depicts intriguing interactions atop this artwork, with playful elephants and defensive crocodiles amongst palm fronds. Thabo Mbele has created movement and narrative as elephants, monkeys, and crocodiles intertwine along the base, grasping textured trunks and tails. Mandla Ngwenya has crafted detail in his painting with the inspiration of Zulu patterning and the lush foliage of the African bush.
