Looking to sell two Kapos. One is a wood sculpture in lignum vitae. The dimensions are 12ins by 12ins. The bottom has carved on it: "Artist Kapo by Kapo" Jamaica '65.
The painting is a watercolour. Dimensions are 14ins by 11ins.
On the back of the painting is written "Bunga" (bungalow), which is a picture of his home.
These pieces were sold together, by Kapo himself, to my mother when she lived in Jamaica.
Kapo saw her as a great supporter of his work and vision.
It is my opinion these pieces are, in effect, a self portrait. To me they make two strong statements:
"this is who or what I believe I am" and "this is where I can be found."
Because of this I believe they are best kept together and are of enhanced value as a pair.
