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.
In a traditional Xhosa ceremony following Madoda Fani’s late grandfather’s passing, it is customary that when a cow is slaughtered as an ancestral offering, oner must break the animal’s horns. It is believed that their sharp points make them a danger. This is the inspiration behind Mpondo Zophukile (Broken Horns).

Burnished.
