Sabie Giraffe Traveller Saving Painted Dogs
This majestic giraffe rider is awe-inspiring in its scale. The wonderfully bold rider from Alex Sibanda has sculpted this giant transporting his family safely through the turmoil of the world. The rider grips a log for her life-giving fire as her child sits on the back. Two ox peckers protect the giraffe from ticks and other nuisances.
Mthulisi has lovingly added incredible butterfly-inspired detail on the African Kente cloth and rider's clothes. The fresh greens remind us of the first summer rains and the elegant design is reminiscent of Kente cloth.
Made by Alex Sibanda and painted by Mthulisi Ncube
