Mama Africa   Bronze by Louis Chanu
(Edition of 15) H650 x L220 x W270 SOLD OUT

Mama Africa is a scene I see so often, whether in the Cape, Transkei, Zimbabwe or Malawi- there will always be an African Mama multi-tasking somewhere. She will have a baby on her back, a crate of quarts on her head and a live rooster in hand. She may be merrily chatting on her cell phone, wrapped in blankets at 35degrees, with a smile on her face and a spring in her step. How could I not cast her in bronze, an image never to be forgotten.
