a family that survived is about a granny who took on all the responsibility that she never applied for, but which her daughert went to interview for. The Pegs used to pin clothes, to make sure that when the winds occur, they do not carry the clothes away . Despite how strong the winds are, they are meant to keep them intact. Even when it rains, they meant to do that until the clothes dry off… Which is their purpose in Thamsanga’s body of work, they are a symbol that no matter how rough the winds are in life….HOPE must never be lost because eventually it will stop… Even in calm winds and instead it rains….and your life (clothes) gets together(wetter), eventually all will cease to pass beacause every storm runs out of rain at some point. At that point your clothes will be dry and just like a farmer it will be time to harvest.
