Trophy Head Wall Hook, Buffalo
Hand made from colourful telephone wire, this fun little wall hook features a cartoon Cape Buffalo; while their odd wig like horns give them a bit of a goofy appearance, they are legendary in the bush for their unpredictability and foul temper which makes them one of African's most dangerous animals.
The craft of Zulu telephone wire art is based on traditional basket weaving and was conceived by Zulu night watchmen, who would weave discarded telephone wire around their security sticks to keep themselves busy. This trend was then transformed by the women who then used the materials and technique to create colourful bowls, baskets and novelty items.
As all items are individually crafted, small variations should be expected.
Approximate Size: 7 x 7 x 6 cm
Colours have been arranged by the colour of the mount behind the head.
