Look at the intricacy of this beadwork!! Gorgeous handmade speckled nguni cow head set against an equally gorgeous, ethically sourced, speckled nguni cow hide at @sereni_handmade in Myer Centrepoint, Albury.
Did you know that nguni are only found in Southern Africa? They are incredible breed that have evolved with minimal human intervention as various European and Indian herds have migrated south through the African continent. It really is a case of survival of the fittest and the nguni have natural abilities to withstand harsh climates and local diseases where other breeds cannot. This amazing breed is also characterised by the gorgeous and unique colourings of each individual animal.
Nguni are not only a traditional indicator of wealth, but are also bred for their amazing beef. It is through this industry that the skins are saved from compost to be transformed into beautiful and unique products, to respect the life of the animal and to support local industries, communities and families. 📷 @sereni_handmade
