Butterfly Tureen

This year, for our ‘Voyages of Discovery’ theme, we wanted to focus on creatures of flight that evoke a whimsical sense of travel. This piece was created by Qiniso Mungwe who is known for his monumental, hand-sculpted forms that are an ode to the animals that they feature. This piece has been painted by Misiwe Hadebe who has a precise, subtle painting style. The soft moth-like peach colours evoke childhood stories and imaginary places that we travel to in dreams. This work reminds us of 'James and the Giant Peach’ or 'Alice in Wonderland' caterpillars smoking hubbly bubbly.
