“The Vulture is said to fly so high above the mountain, that it can see into the future.”
Inspired by local indigenous myths of the bearded vultures in the mountains of the Drakensberg and Afro-Eastern futurism. This Tanpura esque drone instrument was made as a philosophical larynx to explore conceptual links with sonic and spiritual meditations from Natal and Indian diaspora.
Bronze, wood, found objects. 2m x 40cm
