Beaded Porcupine Sculpture
Handmade in South Africa for Monkeybiz, signed by the artist.
Monkeybiz is an economic upliftment project dedicated to reviving the traditional craft of African Beadwork and empowering women to become financially independent. Since 2000, Monkeybiz has supported its 320 bead artists to continue creating these artworks. Profits from the sales of these artworks go back to the community. Each sculpture is unique and one-of-a-kind.
The crowning achievement of Monkeybiz is that it recognizes and develops the artistic ability of people who have never had the opportunity to express themselves through art. They provide a platform for beaders to become artists within their own right.
