Tsonga/Shangaan headrests, staffs, figures, puppets, medicine gourds, healers' attire and snuff containers are some of the finest heritage objects this country has to offer. They are the material record of a complex and dynamic period in South Africa's past. Originating largely in Mozambique, and consolidating themselves in response to the mining industry and to the homeland policy of the apartheid government, Tsonga and Shangaan people mobilised in difficult political, economic and social circumstances to form a distinct identity and artistic style.;The catalogue "Dunga Manzi/Stirring Waters", featuring Tsonga and Shangaan art, culture and heritage, accompanies an exhibition of the same name at the Johannesburg Art Gallery. It tracks the history of these cultural groups through essays and a wealth of images of material culture and art. This full-colour book showcases some of South Africa's most treasured heritage, aiming to make both South Africans and foreigners aware of the richness of creativity on offer, and of the high degree of artistic skill that exists today as it did in the past.
