New Exhibition in the Voortrekker Monument

An exceptional new exhibition depicting the original 27 plaster of paris panels, sculpted between 1941 and 1949 as maquettes (studies) for the eventual marble frieze in the Hall of Heroes, was unveiled on the cenotaph level on 17 December. The history around the panels is immensely interesting and is explained beautifully. It is a must for anyone who loves the Monument. The exhibition will officially be opened soon.
