  • This original artwork titled Reed Dance by David Bucklow. The Reed Dance is an annual event where unmarried virgin Zulu women travel from their chiefdoms to the Royal Village to participate in a ceremony. The Reed Dance was established as a means to encourage young Zulu girls to delay sexual activity until marriage 
    In a style that is most definitely photo-realistic and showing tremendous talent and technique in the detailed treatment of his artworks, David’s content repertoire includes many of South Africa’s iconic landscape and seascape scenes, as well as his beloved Wildlife studies.

Celebrating the rich heritage and cultural diversity of South Africa’s Rainbow Nation, each portrait study humbly and respectfully highlights the proud traditions enshrined into our African tribes, a time-honoured legacy, passed down from generation to generation
