There was lots of space, but there was not much on display. I did like the photography exhibit they had on, but apart from that saw very little to interest me. However, I am going to return as I believe that do have a lot of very interesting readables in the library section which was closed.
Then it was off to my next destination:
One of the reasons for my return to the Constitutional Court complex was to photograph the “Angel of the North” statue, which I had glimpsed from the ramparts of The Fort when I was last there. There was also a wooden artwork close to the old Governors House which I wanted too, but had missed last time around as I had not walked in that area when I had been there in March 2012.
I parked at the bottom of the court and was pleasantly surprised to find a very nice carved artwork of something from your nightmares. I have no idea what it was, or who made it, but it really is quite a stunning piece of work.
I moved to the top of the parking and walked down the alley towards the governors house. The artwork I was after seem to be loosely called “Governors House Trees” and are by Americo Guambe, Ngwedi Design and Trinity Session. I had seen them from the ramparts as well, but had not realised that they were there in the first place.
Unfortunately though, I was not really able to get close to have a good look at these works as the space was too crowded with too many youngsters.
The statue is by Winston Luthuli, and it stands on the corner of Queens and Kotze Streets in Hillbrow.
That concluded my afternoon ramble, and a quick pause for one more statue grouping at the Constitutional Court…
