Each lady figure is hand-formed from stoneware clay and hand-painted with white glaze. There is a wire spiral from the top of her headscarf to hold memo’s or notes.
Give this little lady holding a special note or your favourite quote for a beautiful gift. If you would like a whole community of ladies, these little ceramics also make lovely name card holders on a dining 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. Zizamele’s Ubuntu pieces represent this philosophy.
