Notes

From an edition of 30.

Printed by The Artist's Press, White River, Mpumalanga, South Africa.

Another example from the edition is in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Collection, New York, with the following description on their website:

"Schönfeldt employs irony in mock-pedantic works about the commodification of traditional African objects and turns the question of authenticity and commodity onto his own work. The artist’s depiction of three-headed female animals is inspired by Hindu, Assyrian, and Greco-Roman iconography and relates to his interest in pan-African religion."
