Lelapa Hand Carved and Cast Solid Brass Decorative TOTEM Sculpture Set

$990per set

About

All our TOTEM sculptures are hand carved in Southern Africa from sustainable alien timber by a group of Zimbabwean artists who set their own prices, thus making them fair trade. We then take these carvings and add to them solid sand cast brass embellishment, the TOTEM sculptures are set on a burnished and bronzed steel base to ensure that they are stabile. These sculptures have a strong African, primal and Brutalist aesthetic. These beautiful sculptures are great displayed in a set and make great decorative accessories in any room. We especially love them as desk, mantel or coffee table ornaments. Please note that these sculptures are handmade, while very similar, no two will be the same.

About the Maker

Egg Designs

Founded by South Africans Greg and Roche Dry, Egg is a unique perspective in contemporary furniture, with a spirit that’s deeply rooted in Africa. We believe Egg has a distinctive African design dialect. We dream that our products will not be judged only by their function and form, but by the beauty of their eternal narrative. In everything we create we must answer the question, “Is it Egg enough?” Egg is an amalgamation of heritage, passion, meaning and African soul. It stands the test of time. It’s curiosities that make you smile. Its love and truth that can be seen from afar, and equally found in the minutest details. That’s why every piece we craft comes from Africa and carries within it a part of the African identity. We’re a melting pot of tribal craft, European heritage and modern luxurious expression. “If it’s not Egg enough, it’s not worth doing!” We have widened the prism of contemporary African design by creating Modern Collectibles, high end Furniture & lighting, as well as bespoke interiors inspired by an African provenance for a modern, international customer.
