Nguni Bull, Holy Cow Series


John created a series of 6 works looking at the trade of “money” before the current financial system was created, when traders used commodities to barter wealth. Kubu cloths, natural resources, gold, cows, cowrie shells, rios etc were all used as trade goods.

This work looks at the beauty of an Nguni bull.
