The Protea flower is named after the greek god Proteus, a deity that was able to change between many forms. In a similar manner the Protea genus is known for its astonishing variety and diversity of flowers and leaves. These bronzes embody this biodiversity and hardiness that flourish in the harsh South African climate, an emblem of resistance and beauty symbolic to the South African struggle.
Proteas grow wildly in the fynbos biome, and the interaction of the flower and bugs zooms into the mutually supportive relationship or symbiosis that often exists between kingdoms. This translates to us as humans, on our interaction between each other and our environment. We are both independent yet vulnerable to each other, a reminder that we are never alone and that even the smallest may affect us.
These plants are known for their ability to regenerate and even flourish after facing adversity such as wind and fire. Coincidentally the materials used to create the final sculptures are also exposed to fire, for the mould to melt away to make space for the bronze.

How does an edition work
We sell limited editions of artwork. This means we will only produce a certain number of works in a specific shape, size, or colour. Once a work is released, it is first-come, first-served, and it might sell out real quick. If you do not want to miss out, just register your interest and subscribe to the newsletter. We will drop you an email when the release is about to kick off.
All editioned sculptures have their edition number and signature engraved at the base. For prints and paintings, the edition number is written either on the front or back.
Pay with a bank card, Paypal or bank transfer.
