23 Dec 2005-23 Jan 2006. Exhibition of 11 brightly coloured wood carvings by self-taught artist Phillip Rikhotso illustrating traditional Tsonga stories such as cautionary tales used to encourage children not to stray too far from home or narratives dealing with war and witchcraft. The works display a mix of animal and human, bird or snake in keeping with the Tsonga tradition whereby people metamorphose into creatures half-human, half-bird. The Tsonga are a people who inhabit large parts of South Africas northern and northeastern provinces as well as Swaziland and Mozambique. Rikhotso has exhibited widely at home and abroad. He shared top honours at the Brett Kebble Art Awards in 2004. He has also been commissioned to create a unique walking stick for Nelson Mandela.
