    Within South Africa we courier your artwork to your door - the shipping cost will show at the checkout.

    When shipping art internationally, two primary options are commonly considered: crated and rolled. Crating involves securely packaging the artwork in a custom-built crate, providing maximum protection against physical damage but often resulting in higher shipping costs due to size and weight.
    On the other hand, rolling art involves taking stretched paintings off the frame, carefully wrapping the artwork and placing it in a protective tube. This method is more cost-effective and suitable for flexible pieces.
    Choosing between crating and rolling depends on the specific artwork's size, fragility, and budget, as well as the destination's shipping requirements and regulations.

    We will be in touch regarding the best options for you.

    This beautiful ‘Sugarbird Kudu’ sculpture, painted by Cape Town artist Sharon Boonzaier, is inspired by the Cape Sugarbird seen flitting and flying with their glorious long tails, amongst proteas and pin cushions found on the slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain, one of the 7 wonders of the world.

    The piece is finished with gold leaf and signed by the artist.

    No one piece is the same and each unique head is an artwork to behold.

    The sculpture comes flat-packed with clear instructions on how to assemble and hang, as well as a story about the artist.

    Head on Design


    Drawing on her inspiration from the African bush, Joanna Orr of Head on Design has added her own twist and flavour to the traditional trophy heads, sending a clear message to the trophy hunters out there that we can celebrate these majestic beasts differently.

    Joanna also collaborates with Cape Town artist, Sharon Boonzaier, to create beautiful hand-painted sculptures. For the past 6 years, Sharon has been painting African-inspired themes such as ‘Savanna Plains’, ‘Carmine Bee-Eaters’ and ‘Fynbos Fiesta’ on the kudu, lion, rhino, and elephant heads, all finished in gold leaf.

    Each sculpture she paints is unique, no one piece is ever the same. Gold leaf is creativity applied by fellow artist, Sibulelo Ngozi.

    The sculptures are flat-packed with great care, white gloves are supplied in each box so that they can be reassembled by their new owner. Inside each box, you’ll find a story about the artist and the designer.

    Head On Design is represented by The Artists Gallery in Cape Town.
