South Africa Sketchbook Part Five

We had just a little time to visit the amazing Apartheid Museum, so I didn't sketch much while there.

The two things I captured meant a great deal to me, sort of as a bookend of the amazing history of the people of this area of the world. 

First, I captured this very rough sketch of a wonderful piece of art outlining the Constitutional Pillars of South Africa today.  It made me think long and hard about the work they have done here and the work we need throughout the world.  I think South Africa truly could lead us...

Second, I spent some time drawing from some of the AMAZING etchings done by the San, some fo the earlier people to live in this area, and some of the first in the world to think symbolically.

That just amazed me.

Such visionaries across time lived here in South Africa!
