Contemporary San Art: "Doves and Chicks Eating Worms": By Artist Ncaote Thama, Lino Limited Edition, 202 x 267 mm
“I do not really know what art is”, says Ncaote. “ I just do it and I find I like it.” Ncaote joined the Kuru Art Project in the beginning of 2010. She loves the Kalahari bush passionately. She lived previously in the settlement of Rooibrak on the very edge of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve, where she met and married the late Kuru artists Thamae Setshogo. Together they had three children. It was Thamae’s love of the art and his beautiful paintings that intrigued her and caused her to try it as well. Since Ncaote joined the project she had made beautiful paintings and linocuts that tells of her love and knowledge of the Kalahari.
