this is a buddy of mine, Peter Hlongwane.
He is a Shangaan.
we were working down in a little harbour and came across this whale skull that seemed the perfect throne. in fact this photo was taken for the favourite chair theme.
Pete's nickname is Mafuta which means "fat one" and he just seemed to naturally become a happy buddah
