The Century City Art Trail has been boosted by the addition of a Janko de Beer bronze sculpture of a horse’s head. The stunning statue, entitled Sanctified, forms part of Janko’s Equus horse theme series which is based on the mythical relationship between humans and horses.
The third in an edition of eight variable bronzes, Sanctified weighs around 130kg and has been erected on a concrete plinth in a prominent site, near the Waters Edge development overlooking the canal and Intaka island.
Sanctified, which has been cast in bronze with a steel base designed to weather over time, has been donated by Janko to the Century City Arts Foundation which only had to pay for the casting. The first two sculptures in the Equus edition are located at Benguela Cove near Hermanus and a castle in Scotland. The fourth in the series has been purchased by Klein Constantia wine farm.
25 Artworks on the Century City Arts Trail
Sanctified brings to 25 the number of exhibits currently on the Century City Art Trail. Most of the exhibits are outdoors and range from the Impromptu Pavilion in Century City Square celebrating South Africa’s diversity and its 11 official languages to sculptures by Right Mukore to the Station Walkway and its graffiti artwork welcoming pedestrians from the Century City Station.
