Looking to create something a little less busy than the ‘Madame-style” Mirror, the ‘Nyanga’ Mirror has been stripped of all its ornamentation; taking on the appearance of a fabulous lunar shape. The word ‘Nyanga’ is the Xhosa word for Moon and curiously, it is also the Xhosa word for traditional healer – or witch doctor. The use of beads is synonymous with the Xhosa, and white beads are regarded as sacred and used only by those imbued with ancient ancestral wisdom. For those who appreciate the fine craftmanship of the beadwork, but prefer a purity of form, the ‘Nyanga’ mirror is a fitting match.
