A Brief History

None.

Description

This artwork is a reinterpretation of the 14 original buck sculptures that used to be at this park. The artwork is a miniature herd of 14 bokkies (Springbok) grazing and relaxing, made from cast iron, raised on an elevated concrete plinth.

An important element of the 2010 Ernest Oppenheimer Park upgrade was the implementation of a series of sculptures that draw their inspiration from the history and contemporary culture of the city of Johannesburg.
