    The present lot most likely depicts Brandwag Buttress, a great rock formation located in the Golden Gate Highlands, near the Lesotho border. The region is named after the golden and ochre sandstone cliffs that line the valley, and is notable for the San rock paintings that adorn a number of the caves. The scenic beauty and geological interest of the site led to it being awarded national park status in 1963.
