About "Xhosa woman & pipe"
A mature Xhosa woman, at a village in South Africa’s North -West Province, holds a long-stemmed beaded pipe. The universal use of tobacco by Xhosa men and women has led to considerable attention being paid to the creation of pipes, which are often beaded around the stems. Since women use very long-stemmed pipes – in order, it is said, to keep the ashes away from nursing children – their pipes sport these elegant, beaded stems. The beading also serves to make the stem cooler to handle.

Semi-secret sensuality of by-gone times, present life-styles and customs, driving my artistic instincts.
Travelled extensively to Europe mainly Portugal, France & Italy capturing every moment and cultivating a deep love of the arts. Soon realized the gift of a God given talent.
