Pride of Namibia
Height - 19 inches (49cm) , Width - 13 inches (33cm)
On a recent trip to Namibia, South West Africa, I was asked by a German lady from Karlsruhe if I could sculpt a Bushman. This sculpture represents the pride of the Himba People who inhabit the Etosha Pan region of Northern Namibia. The Himba have survived millennia hunting the seasonal migrations of animals endemic to the region. They are a fiercely proud people.
