Paper Mache Nguni Cow


A collection of hand crafted Nguni cow by Zimbabwean artist, Malaki Ndlovu. Malaki collects discarded wire which is used to form the structure of the cow. Egg boxes from the local community are broken down to a pulp which is moulded around the wire frame. Once dried the Nguni come to life with their paint technique and markings. Each piece produced is unique in its composition and a work of art. The paper mache Nguni cow are the perfect decor piece, collectors item or thoughtful gift.

Papier-mâché is a composite material consisting of paper pieces or pulp, reinforced with textiles, bound with an adhesive, such as glue, starch, or wallpaper paste which gives it a slight glazed look on the surface.
