Nubian Queen Kandake Candace Sculpture Bust

Nubian Queen Kandake Candace Sculpture Bust. Kandake or Kentake, also known as Candace, was the title for queens and queen mothers of the ancient African empire of Kush (also known as Nubia). The name Candace and its variants derive from the title Kandake. In the New Testament of the Christian Bible, a treasury official of "Candace, queen of the Ethiopians" returning from a trip to Jerusalem was baptised by Philip.

DAILY MUSE: Toni Foard, describes himself as an English potter, hand builds each female figure using white clay. Each sculpture is fired several times in sections and they all have a distinctively African feel to them. The color often comes from controlling the way the smoke penetrates the surfaces, in addition to glazes and lustres. His goal is for each slender figure to have ‘attitude’.
