Mpakama Xhanti

Xhanti Mpakama grew up in South Africa close to where Nelson Mandela was born. He soon showed a natural artistic talent being keen on sculpturing from an early age.

Much of his inspiration comes from the environment of his youth. This was influenced by the annual migration of men to the gold mines which often caused great hardship to the women and children left at home
