“New Horizon” is latest addition to artworks of Route 67 at Donkin Village.

A new artwork has been added to The Donkin Village, part of Route 67. Louwrens Westraad’s artwork “New Horizon” comprises two metallic oxen pulling a wagon. The artwork is located at the bottom end of Constitution Hill, opposite Heritage Café.

“The New Horizon public sculpture reflects the individual, manufacturing and motoring history of Nelson Mandela Bay – the resilient nature and pioneering spirit of all who live in the province,” Westraad said, revealing that the work had taken three months to create. The oxen consist of more than a thousand individually collected, sorted, shaped and welded steel and iron components. They embody the strength and optimism required to boldly journey up and over the mountains of tomorrow – united as team,” Westraad said. The artwork in part also pays homage to oxen and the wagon and their contribution to the history of transportation.

Westraad played a pivotal role in the creation of the 7m-highUjiva (Xhosa for “dance”) sculpture on the Walker Drive traffic circle near Baywest City Mall.

The central business district, which incorporates the Route 67 Arts Journey, is becoming one of the largest and most diverse installation areas of public art in the country.
