"As She Sheds" captures the serene essence of a young Mbalantu Tribe woman, her Eembuvi braids cascading to the ground.

Her gaze is fixed on the tenacious Namibian flora known as the King Protea, a symbol of resilience, its leaves never shedding as the flowers come and go. This piece portrays the parallel narratives of women and nature, shedding old layers and embracing newfound strength and fortitude.
