The king protea (Protea cynaroides) is a flowering plant. It is a distinctive member of Protea, having the largest flower head in the genus. The species is also known as giant protea, honeypot or king sugar bush. It is widely distributed in the southwestern and southern parts of South Africa in the fynbos region.
South African national animal - Springbok I know this is South Africa, but we were assigned just Africa and then Nisha asked specifically about country so it may not matter. Anyway if we use the Springbok as inspiration for our concept look at the color pattern and imagine it as eyeshadow and the color combo is great with the white and gold. I could also incorporate the antlers along with feathers into the hair.
