PDC Large snare wire sculptures

Iganyana Arts
Wire snares are one of the key killers in illegal poaching and are difficult to prevent. To highlight this insidious danger, PDC commissioned local artists to create sculptures from the snare wires collected by their Anti-Poaching units, turning something negative into something truly wonderful. The first of these amazing wire sculptures were sold in 2005 at
Christie’s Auction House in London.
Since then, the artists at Iganyana have created many more, contributing greatly to the success of PDC. The range of designs is constantly expanded on but the way they are created is still the same. No moulds or templates, just a pair of pliers and a lot of meticulous shaping turns the wire recovered from the bush into lifelike shapes of everything from painted dogs and giraffes to geckos and pangolins.
Snare wire sculptures are unique to the Iganyana Art Centre.
 
100% of the proceeds from the items in this gallery will go towards the funding of the trailer on the PDC wish list.  PDC UK have kindly offered to make up any shortfall.
 
Iganyana Arts was established by PDC in 2003. The centre just outside Hwange National Park, provides facilities and training for youth and adult art projects with great emphasis on quality. Affiliated artists are paid by PDC per piece for their products. Many artisans have developed their own unique signature style as well as their own designs.
Quote Wendy Blakely, Iganyana Art Centre Coordinator:
“The primary goal of the centre is to bring immediate financial benefit to
our artists. A second – but equally important goal is to teach and encourage conservation, through the sustainable use of natural resources in the design of our products and the materials used to make them.”
Iganyana artisans:
Shambani Chuma - Lewis Mbewe - Mpilo Phahlane
 July Mhlanga - Herbert Sibanda - Tawanda Mathe - Sadon Kamanga Tapiwa Juru Dzvanga - Winston Mvula - Ishmael Zulu - Alex Jele
Spencer Mwaibuku - Lingani Moyo - Newman Garai - Calvin Dube
With the profit from the art sales going back to PDC, these artists also contribute directly to the conservation of the African painted dog. Their work ties the interests of the community to that of the painted dogs.
