Hands up! Who has been to Zimbabwe? Master Wire and Bead Craft’s totem has inspired us to visit our neighbouring country, so beautifully captured in this piece of design, with its national flower and emblem of the Zimbabwe Bird. Business founder Bishop Tarambawamwe grew up herding cattle and tending to the land in his clan’s part of the Manicaland province: “I know the mountains of the area very well. People call mountain-climbing a hobby, but to me it was just how I grew up. I’m so proud of the culture I grew up with, and the way we were taught to work with our hands. Nowadays kids are just interested in the computer...” Need more convincing to cross the border? Visit Bishop at his store in the Watershed and hear first-hand accounts of his breath-taking country. bishopt90 #8TravellingTotems #JoyFromAfrica – our journey of change and compassion

Totem name: Paivepo, by Master Wire and Bead Craft, inspired by Zimbabwe. ‘Paivepo’ is the Shona word used at the beginning of every folktale and is the name of this totem that represents Zimbabwe, the home country of Master Wire and Bead Craft Founder Bishop Tarambawamwe. The totem is decorated with the magnificent flame lily that is the country’s national flower. “We used to see them everywhere when we were herding cattle,” says Bishop. “We would play a game with the flower, pulling it from either side. Whoever got the stem would be the winner, and the loser would have to do things like return the cattle from the mountains for three days in a row.” In the centre of the totem is a beaded replica of an elder’s stool that one finds in every village home, and above this is a beaded chirongo, a vessel traditionally made from clay to store water or beer. At the pinnacle stands the Zimbabwe Bird. There are 8 Travelling Totems from all over SA. Come to Victoria Wharf (near Louis Vuitton) to see this artistry or visit https://www.joyfromafrica.co.za/discovery. Master Wire and Bead Craft is part of our Watershed family. bishopt90 #8TravellingTotems #JoyFromAfrica – our journey of change and compassion

This Binga basket, woven with ilala palm, is a unique product of Southern Africa. Commonly called Tonga baskets, they are the traditional grain-winnowing baskets made by the displaced Batonga people in the Binga district of north-western Zimbabwe and southern Zambia. In the early 1960s, when Lake Kariba was constructed, the Batonga’s fertile lands along the Zambezi River were flooded, forcing them to relocate to more barren lands on either side of the 220-kilometre lake. Learn more interesting facts about African basketry at the 100 Beautiful Baskets exhibition. On until the end of the month (above H&M), 10am – 7pm. FREE ENTRY #100BeautifulBaskets #JoyFromAfrica

Why not head over to the Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town Diamond Museum, or Robben Island Museum, and snap a selfie. Bonus points if you post it and tag us.
