About "Mama Africa"

This freestanding sculpture represents the birth of our new nation as well as the delicate balance between nature and mankind. The arms are extended back in the throws of birth and the feet (representing roots) are anchored in the earth, thereby signifying our roots in the African continent. The chest is exposed, which gives a glimpse of the decay of nature and emphasizes the fact that care should be taken to preserve our Africa for children yet unborn. Unique (one only.) Different views on request.

About Frans

Frans Boekkooi

"My sculptures feed off the nostalgia of innocent times, lost in thought or activity. Sometimes they even embody the thoughts or pictures born in a moment [0x1] but every piece has meaning. To me, at least, they speak.[0x1]

Price Range

US$ 265-20,144



Frans Boekkooi was introduced to sculpture at the age of fourteen and won his first major sculpture award (ATKV) at sixteen. He received the ‘Best on Show’ Award at the 2000 EPSAC Annual Exhibition. His work features in collections in the UK, US, Australia, China and Holland, as well as the Presidents Collection. Frans is a sought-after commissioned artist who works from ideas and / or photographs to the client’s specifications and achieves an astounding likeness to the subject. Among his clients are architects, interior designers, corporate buyers and art lovers who want an exclusive and personal work of art. He lives in Nieu Bethesda, a small village in the Karoo, South Africa.
