After a year of strenuous work, Zizipho Poswa has released her newest solo exhibition of ceramic and bronze sculptures titled uBuhle boKhokho (Beauty of Our Ancestors).
Inspired by her own cultural story as a Xhosa woman, Poswa crafted sculptural works that depict interpretations of the elaborate art of hairstyling practised by herself and many Black women across Africa. Measuring up to 2 metres tall, these artworks are imposing in their monumentality, yet they still retain a sense of femininity and sensuality.
Now you have the opportunity to own a piece of history and count yourself among institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and the Loewe Foundation, all of which have acquired Poswa’s works.
Starting at $80,000, these sculptures are available for purchase at the Southern Guild.
