Tendai is a well travelled man having travelled the world while exhibiting his art. While many of his sculptures draw inspiration from African subjects and folklore he readily admits that he took his inspiration for this piece from Michelangelo’s “I prigorni”. This piece represents an interesting example of the flow of inspiration between the most famous renaissance sculptor and a modern day African artist.
