Description/

The patterned incisions that have defined Madoda Fani’s work to date armour this hand-coiled works, their contours are articulated by concentric lines carved into the clay, finished with detailed markings and studded protrusions, whose repetition lends the surfaces a mesmerising rhythm.
Intsimbi is also the name of the white bead bracelet that is traditionally worn by Xhosa people for protection and guidance. What has inspired this work, is Madoda Fani’s adornment of one of these at the time of his late grandfather’s passing, to show appreciation to his ancestors during a traditional Xhosa ceremony in honour of hm, whose spirit his family was inviting to accompany them to their new home in Gugulethu, South Africa.
