Shamanic Antelope Statue
The minotaur and owl figure sculpted by Tebogho Ndlovu represents wrestling masculine and feminine forces. The masked antelope figure is inspired by shamanic demons that we have seen emerge from past civilisations and cultures. It harks back to Egyptian animal-headed gods and the centaurs and minotaurs from Greek and Roman Legends, where man and beast lived as one.
The owl represents wisdom and mysticism, signifying the divine revealing the side of ourselves which we keep masked, our wildest self. Wiseman Ndlovu has added the earthy colours and the verdigris of the shamanic animal brings a grounded and historical element to this artwork.
Made by Tebogho Ndlovu and painted by Wiseman Ndlovu
