This craftwork is a natural product of Africa who will never let you down, need no electricity! The skins that I now use to create the Africa/SA maps include Kudu, Springbok, Red Hartebeest, Gemsbok, Impala, Blue Wildebeest, Blesbuck, Zebra and especially the famous Nguni hide. The different skins come from a specific tannery who's known for their quality. Your African map is an exquisite focus point anywhere - in your private study, formal or informal office, corporate conference room, home braai area, lapa, etc. Bigger or smaller clocks can be ordered. Enjoy it!
