    Product description

    Qiniso Mungwe’s sizable pangolin sculpture stands as an exceptional work of art. Hours of meticulous effort have been dedicated to the moulding of each scale, resulting in a large textured form that captivates viewers and sheds light on the plight of this remarkable creature—among the most trafficked mammals in Africa. Mthulisi Ncube, in a thoughtful approach, has heightened the sculpture’s impact by selectively painting only the face of the pangolin and adorning the inner side of its tail with intricate patterns. This deliberate choice allows the sculptor’s genius and craftsmanship to take centre stage, offering a moment for the artist’s skill and mastery to shine through in the overall presentation of the pangolin sculpture.

    Made by Qiniso Mungwe and painted by Mthulisi Ncube
