Nguni Gold

African Legacy of Love and Respect

Within the African tradition of love and respect the practice of Lobola is part of African culture. It is a traditional custom practiced by most Southern African tribes. Simply put, it is a dowry paid to a woman’s family by her future husband before he is allowed to marry her. Lobola is a symbol of Love.

The Nguni Gold idea is firmly rooted in maintaining the tradition of paying for a bride with Nguni – only now in silver or gold – which in some instances will be more practical for the modern family.

Metal Concentrators presents their premier Heritage Collection:  Nguni Gold Limited Edition sculptures, cast in gold and silver.

About the Artist

Lungisa Kala

The artist behind the creation of the Nguni Gold cows is 35-year-old Lungisa Kala, who hails from Willowvale in the Eastern Cape.

“I spent some years growing up in rural areas in the Eastern Cape and cows have such a high value and important meaning in my culture” Kala says. “They have got value and are respected more than money.”

Kala says he spent hours observing cows to be able to recreate the life-like golden art pieces.
