Notes

The cermaic piece enacts the deep significance of iCamagu (giving thanks) in Xhosa culture through three vessels and offerings, symbolising essential steps towards reconciliation and personal growth: Umlisela Nomthinjane (literally “young men and women”), a reference to the next generation; Embo (“origin”) and Nyulu (“purifying”).

The proceeds of the present lot will go toward supporting the artist’s former school in his home village in Qobo Qobo in the Eastern Cape, Ngobozana Primary School.
