Elephant Voyages of Discovery Vessel

Alex Sibanda has sculpted elephants with pith helmeted travelers around the rim of a large balloon shaped vase, thrown by George Manyathela. There is an element of fun in his creativity. Senzo Duma has decorated the surface with butterfly and tortoise shell motif in black, white and yellow, creating a strong, sophisticated graphic work with a touch of humour through the monkey explorers.
