The second piece to be completed in the collection. Ms Jone$ was born in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, so it seemed only fitting that she should look to her homeland to find the subject for her next project. President Robert Gabriel Mugabe.
This is a multi-media piece and consists of a bronze figurine (330 x 120 x 140 mm) with exquisite eyewear from ic! berlin and a golden sceptre. The piece is displayed in its own original handcrafted, satin-lined casket. Robert uses the aid of a magnificent golden staff – the Nyami Nyami Stick. The Nyami Nyami, otherwise known as the Zambezi River God or Zambezi Snake spirit, and is one of the most important gods of the Tonga people.
As with all the other pieces in this collection, the figure wears clothes, shoes and accessories that are tailor-made for the individual, and resemble the fine weave of the worsteds, showing the distinctive cut and quality of the original designs.
The figure stands independent of the fine casket, but one can order any base or casket, that one desires. Another limited edition piece and no more than 10 pieces will be cast of this fine quality collector’s item, available in standard or coloured patinas. Plinths may be ordered to clients specifications. (SQ)
