Recycled Red Earbud Wire Rhino

$ 30.00

A rhino like no other! The figures are made using wire that is manipulated with pliers, wire cutters and scissors. The form is then wrapped with earbud wire, then tied off and glued giving the animals a contemporary cool look that will appeal to a variety of collectors. The earpiece eyes add a nice touch.

Many artists in the village grew up learning this technique from grandparents. Today it provides many mothers a way of generating income and they are able to pass on this tradition to future generations. 

This item measures approximately 6" long by 2" tall by 2" wide.  Because this is original folk art, accents on each piece may have slight variations from the item pictured.

“We hope that beyond owning a piece of artwork, people will remember the story of the people who created it.”   Lulama Sihlabeni of eKhaya eKasi Art and Education Centre, South Africa
