The platter is hand-built from Stoneware clay and has 8 African lady figures which hold hands in a spirit of unity around its rim. They wear their African headscarves and some carry their babies on their backs. The platter is hand-painted in geometric African patterns using an Indigo glaze, reminiscent of the blue Schweshwe patterns so beloved by all South Africans.
Hang this gorgeous platter on the wall as a unique piece of decorative wall art or to use as a fruit dish on a table.
“UMUNTU ngumuntu ngabantu”
It is a complex Nguni word that means “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.”
“I am what I am because of who we all are.”
In Africa, the definition of an individual is community-based and not individualist. The Ubuntu bowls with their women holding hands in a spirit of Ubuntu, represent this philosophy.
