Footnotes

  • Provenance
    A private UK collection.

    This recently re-discovered bronze is similar to the 1963 example found in the Rupert Museum, Stellenbosch. A later editon (with a different shape to the dove's wings) was produced by Linda Goodman (founder of the Goodman Gallery) from 1977-1997.

    The terracotta was illustrated in an article on the 1963/64 Amadlozi Group farewell tour of Italy.
