Textile Art: Kwakwa - Hamba Collection

This design is inspired by Kwakwa, an imaginary bird crossbred from a crown crane and a guinea fowl. In the narrative of an African witch doctor, Sangoma, birds represent the highest level of human wisdom: After seven reincarnation cycles, you will finally become a bird. Birds are omnipotent: They walk on the land, float on the water, and fly in the air.The motifs in the design are a deconstruction and juxtaposition of different parts of the bird, creating a Cubism-style representation of a bird's three-dimensional form and depicting the spiritual belief of Sangoma. In relation to life's journey, Kwakwa symbolizes our spiritual growth.
