AMAGUGU III (article first published : 2001-03-3)

The African Art Centre will host Amagugu III Treasures Exhibition from March 8.

"Over 800 items have been collected," says AAC director Anthea Martin. "This year we have managed to collect rare earplugs and very old Nguni beadwork. Very special are the ceramic Zulu beer pots from the Pongola area with some dates 1920's. We have some superb wooden meat trays and headrests and some interesting spears and ceremonial dancing sticks and headdresses."

Beadwork has been obtained 14 areas in KZN, Umvoti, Greytown, Eshowe, Maphumulo, Ulundi, Nongoma, Nkandla, Umkomaas, Msinga, Mtubatuba, New Hanover, Estcourt, Bergville and Pongola. From Transkei there are beer baskets, plus rare beadwork from the Thembu people of the Cofimvaba area.

Walk-about talks will be conducted from 12h00 to 13h00 on March 8 (beadwork - Hlenge Dube); March 14 (Zulu ceramics - Prof Julliette Armstrong) and March 22 (beadwork - Hlenge Dube).

Educational institutions may request special talks from Hlenge Dube on (031) 304-7915.
