NIROX SCULPTURE PARK

On a sunny Saturday afternoon we took an hour’s drive to the Cradle of Humankind from Pretoria. We were visiting Nirox Sculpture Park for the first time which is located in the Khatlhampi Private Reserve, near Krugersdorp.

A869DBA3-1EBC-4F9B-9F56-135750BD4A51We had driven past this sculpture park back in December 2016 and we have always wanted to visit since then, so we finally got the chance when Meletso recently attended the Classics Concert at Nirox, which consisted of a 40 piece orchestra under the baton of Maestro Kutlwano Masote and led by Miro Chakaryan Concert Master of The JPO.

The orchestra entertained the crowd with melodies from the Mediterranean, it was a perfect compilation to a a relaxing day on the manicured lawns of this beautiful park.

During the interval we took a walk to see the beautiful sculptures, we found that The Nirox Sculpture Park has a number of beautiful sculptures by various artists such as Richard Long, Willem Boshoff, Caroline Bittermann, Valerio Berruti, Rebecca Chesney, Pryanka Choudhari, Rosenclare and Thomas Mulcaire.
