Africa Artist Andries Botha brings Nomkhubulwane to Merida
Andries Botha, notable South African sculpture, will travel across the Atlantic with his 3 meter tall elephant sculpture, Nomkhubulwane. Botha describes the project: “This elephant has been woven out of recycled motor car tires. It was designed and built to go to WILD9….It is made in collaboration with the Magqubo Ntombela foundation and the wilderness movement, under that patronage of Dr. Player, world renowned conservationist…This elephant serves as a creative symbolic reference that calls people to new imaginative conversations with our ailing co-existence with other living things.” All materials and infrastructure for the production of Nomkhubulwane was supplied by Premat, Durban. Thank you to the many individuals have supported her trip to Mexico!
