Description

A respected sculptor at his home in Utopia, Wally began sculpting hats for Mbantua Gallery in 2008. Usually carved from the wood of trees found in northern Utopia, this hat is symbolic of the work and lifestyle of many Utopia men. Many of these men work as stock hands on neighbouring cattle stations or cultivate their own land. This hat provides good protection from the harsh summer sun.
