Elephant Water Urns
Thabiso Mohlakoana has sculpted this striking pair of elephant urns to celebrate the spring rains and the rejuvenation and growth that the seasons bring. The young elephant calves gambol in the waterhole, their hides coated in dust and mud and scratched with wire in the sculpting process to create a life-like texture.
The base and neck of the urns are painted with snakeskin patterning in earthy brown and charcoal. Wiseman Ndlovu has contrasted the cream colour of the background of the urns with the fresh green foliage of the grasslands.
