This showstopper, comprising 14 lady figures, is the biggest Ubuntu Bowl made by Zizamele Ceramics.  It will grace any boutique hotel reception area or boardroom table either locally or internationally.

The African ladies hold hands around the rim of the hand-thrown charcoal clay bowl. They wear their African headscarves and carry their babies tied to their backs in traditional fashion. The geometric African patterns are hand-painted using white and metallic glazes.

“UMUNTU ngumuntu ngabantu” is a complex Nguni word that means “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity” or “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.
