Footnotes

  • LITERATURE:
    A.E. Duffey, Anton van Wouw: The Smaller Works, (Pretoria, 2008), Nisini casting illustrated p.51

    "This sculpture shows a dejected President Kruger as an old man seated in a large easy chair with a blanket over his knees and a great State Bible on his lap. The old president holds the top of the Book with his right hand and rests his left arm on the armrest of the chair. His eyes are not on the Bible, but stare into the uncertain, unfathomable future." (Ibid.)
