It is not known if these clay sculptures were ever fired or cast, or whether they survived. Only in 2010, while scrutinising some contact prints made in 1966 by "A. Moosa Badsha" from Durban, were the images of these works re-discovered!

If you are the lucky owner of one of these sculptures, please let us have more details so that we may update our archives.
