Artist's Description

According to the mythological story* 400 years ago in the region of South Africa, now known as Kruger National Park there lived Numbi the Queen of an Empire. She was an old white haired woman, a previously powerful leader now failing in limb and heart. Attacked by an illness which made her legs and stomach swell, her people prayed for months to the ancestors for guidance but the Queen edged closer to death each day. Then one night a bright light descended from the skies and landed in a valley not far from her royal kraal. They thought it must be a star from the heavens. The Queen and her people went to look. This light which spread across the land emanated from a strange humming object, big enough to house a meeting. Even though her people quailed at the sight and sound, the Queen showed no fear and with two of her oldest and most trusted servants made her way to the ‘star’.
As they approached, Queen Numbi was drawn to the light and welcomed by a strange being she perceived as God. She told her servants that as a Queen she must accept the welcome of such a high being. Entering the shining object she disappeared from view and the two servants fled back to the village. On their arrival the star-like object rose up from the ground, bathing the land once more in its radiant light, and shot through the sky.
The legacy of that night includes a number of strange births for many years afterwards at what became known as Timbavaati – cattle with two heads, white impala, white leopards, even white elephants as well as the legendary White Lion… Since this time White Lions, although an infrequent occurrence, are born in the wild in this one place only – Timbavaati – the place where star lions came down – a sacred land for a sacred creature.
