On Friday the 19th of March 2021, The Gallery installed one of the largest sculptures in South Africa right outside the building, at the Polo Village Offices. This installation, in partnership with Knysna Fine Art, is part of The Gallery’s vision to showcase incredible art in and around Val de Vie Estate.
A limited edition bronze maquette of the ‘Rabbit with Flute’ is for sale through The Gallery. Please get in touch for more information.
A modular system implemented by the Knysna Fine Art team along with the artist, Carol Caudwell and numerous other hands, came together for the assembly of this gigantic work of art. ‘Rabbit with Flute’ is the first public art sculpture to be installed on Val de Vie Estate.
About the Sculpture
The physical form and content of ‘Rabbit with Flute’ underlines its importance on two levels: the monumental scale is a technical masterpiece, and the rabbit musician becomes a metaphor for solitude and the joy of music.
‘Rabbit with Flute’ is 5,2 meters tall and made of a metal skeleton covered with a resin coating.
About the Sculptor
Carol Cauldwell is one of the most sought-after sculptors in South Africa with works recently acquired by private and public collectors across the globe. Her work can be described as magic realism and appeals to the nostalgic yearning in all of us and our dreams of a safer and more innocent world.
