This magnificent vessel was inspired by Fee Halsted’s memories and admiration for an impala fountain created by Herman Wald in 1960 in honor of Ernest Oppenheimer, commissioned by his son, Harry for the city of Johannesburg.

 

Nothing is more poetic, elegant and dramatic than a herd of impala jumping through the air in unison and the ‘Lion King’ play illustrates this sighting so well with puppets moving in bicycle motion.

 

Tebogo Ndlovu, who will be attending this year’s ‘The Pride of Africa’ exhibition, has demonstrated his masterly skill and talent and has given us an addition of the birth of a new lamb. A healthy herd means a healthy ecosystem as impala are the staple food to most wild cats, especially the leopard.

Siyabonga Mabaso has humbly limited his palette, allowing Tebogo’s sculpting talent to shine. He has contrasted the golden-brown impala against grey and black thornvelt, adding lightness to the heavily loaded rim of the vessel.

This is a true Ardmore Masterwork illustrating a perfect partnership between two super talented artists.
