Eland

  Cnr Bertha St and Ameshoff St, Braamfontein ,   Braamfontein         more than a year ago
created 21 Sep 2009
Artist Clive van den Berg’s sculpture of a giant buck with its aloe planters (2007) greets visitors to Braamfontein at one of the gateways to the inner city. Eland is 'a large representation of an eland on a corner where it has long since disappeared', wrote Van den Berg. The sculpture brings to mind San ancestors and the natural environment that has long since been taken over by a growing city. He added that he hoped the Eland would prompt 'reflection on our relationship to the past, and to the interconnectedness of environmental, cultural and spiritual destinies.'
