Ubuntu by Tshuma
In United We Stand, Divided We Fall, Tshuma encapsulates the spirit of Ubuntu. A philosophical concept that means we only find our humanity through seeing the humanity present in others. Herein Tshuma is deriding the divisions that are so evident across southern Africa. He sees tribal division, racial division and swathes of discrimination in many forms that cripple these societies.
The three one-legged individuals in this sculpture are only able to stand up if they embrace each other. This is the only way he feels we can progress as people, to understand the person next to you and give something of yourself to them.
