Inyanga

Inyanga

Recent project by South African illustrator Thabo Mbuyisa.

An impression of a traditional healer also known as “Inyanga” in the Zulu language. Portrayed here sporting an elaborate hat made out of a morph of bone, other kinds of organic matter and bits of technological devices. These serve as representations of the strange and interesting relationship between African traditions and contemporary life in South Africa.
