Streetwires, Cape Town

Step aside Nordic antlers... 

A friend from South Africa was telling me about these wire and bead beauties over the weekend as apparently they are big in Cape Town. 

And I can see why, I think these "trophy heads" are hugely appealing and they feel like a very modern way of acknowledging the wonder of African animals rather than say killing and mounting the real thing, so 19th century. They are made by a local Fair Trade company called Streetwires which also makes some lovely wire 'n' bead baskets and bowls.
