Idzila refers to the copper neck rings worn by the Ndebele woman once she is married. The number of rings worn are representative of the wealth of her husband. The more rings she wears, the wealthier is her husband. Moreover, the rings are representative of her bond with her husband and inspires her faithfullness to their union. She only removes the rings in the event of her husband's death.
An artwork becomes a timeless masterpiece when it is able to silence the viewer by the magnitude and profoundness of it's beauty and simplicity. When the viewer is silenced of all thoughts and is able to rest the eye on beauty, then the work can be said to have gravity and will be timeless.
