Product Description

Hand Crafted Multi Metal Ethnic Bust of a Zulu Maiden
The Zimbabwean artist Caspar De Vari created this statue of a Zulu Maiden; because she is a maiden her head and chest are bare, only the married women cover their hair and chests. The busts are cast out of various metals copper, brass, aluminum and zinc silver. This piece is signed and numbered and comes with an authenticity certificate, making this unique piece a limited edition. The most incredible thing about Casper's; work is the fact that he has managed to capture such fine detail in each, from the facial expressions to the texture of a fabric.

Social gatherings present dancers of the various clans with the opportunity of displaying their skills and fitness while the onlookers accompany them by playing drums, singing, whistling and ululating.

Dancing, making music and drinking traditional beer all form part of all Zulu ceremonies, such as the celebration of the coming of age of a boy or a girl, a marriage or a funeral. Men and boys usually perform separately from the women. The dances of the men may reflect stylized battle movements or describe the whipped up energy before the hunt. Women’s dances are more likely to portray a humorous story
