Aloe Marauders

Thabo Mbhele has skilfully created tension in this leopard and baboon urn. Leopards prowl at the base whilst a troop of baboons parade on the rim, taunting the big cats. Baboons are a leopard’s favourite meal but here they are separated by sumptuous aloes. Thabo and painter, Mthulisi Ncube, have together created an exotic, bright, African masterwork that creates drama and gives us an insight into life in the wild.
