The oryx antelope, known as the ‘thoroughbred of the desert’, can live in vast herds of up to two hundred animals in desert environments.

Somandla Ntshalintshali has been inspired by the elegance of the oryx and its spear shaped horns. He has created these oryx bowls representing a herd. He has curled their limbs into foetal position around a bowl-shaped torso with horns cleverly folded back for protection and functionality.

Senzo Duma and Siyabonga Mabaso have painted the herd in the oryx colour, light ochre which is contrasted with black and white patterns, designing a striking trio.
