The range of cold cast Bronze figurines and colour figurines are true reproductions of the native people of Africa. Each figurine is crafted on a bonded limestone core with all finishing details expertly done by hand. Cold cast figurines are all coated in a thin layer of cold cast bronze while the colour figurines are all painstakingly detailed with enamelling.
Cold – Cast bronze is made by mixing real bronze powder with a bonding paste and applying this to the surface of the figurine. This coat of real bronze is then burnished to a sheen.
Each figurine includes a captivating story card of interesting tribal customs and information.
The name Sindiswa means `saved` The Xhosa tribe are from the Eastern Cape region and are the second largest tribe in South Africa. The legendary Nelson Mandela is a member of the Xhosa tribe. Older Xhosa women are often seen smoking long elegant pipes that are beautifully decorated with beads. Traditionally they were only allowed to smoke a pipe after giving birth to a certain number of children. The pipe and tobacco are carried in a decorative bag.
