Africa is home to a greater diversity of tortoises than any other place
in the world, and tortoises are featured in many fables and myths in
African culture. This playful metal tortoise is hand crafted from
recycled 40 gallon oil drums in Zimbabwe.
The artists leave what
remains of the original fun and vibrant colors on the drums, creating
this unique mosaic effect. It's another wonderful example of creating
beauty from waste - something African artists do uniquely well.
