Voortrekker Monument, Pretoria

 

Monuments by their very nature commemorate a person, group or event. This monument to the Voortrekkers is dramatic and quite imposing. Situated on a hill, it is visible from afar and is an image with which many South Africans are familiar. What took me by surprise was how much more imposing it became the closer I got.

 

The space inside is flooded with golden light streaming in through the large yellow windows on all four sides. The open cube-like space is topped off with a sky-blue dome accessible to visitors. Looking down from up there is incredible - besides gravity doing a number on my eyeballs when I dared to peer over the edge, the geometric design of the floor pattern far below felt like it added a turbo to that sensation of being pulled down. The geometric design leads the eye to a marble block in the basement, a symbolic grave, with the words engraved on its top “Ons vir jou Suid-Afrika” (We are for you, South Africa).” 

This image was taken in January 2011.
