Tale of Shipwrecks/My Swift Family
This mural is inspired by the shipwrecks in the local area – Irish decedents of shipwreck survivors live in Melkhoutfontein. It was painted in 2017 and proudly adorns the ‘Dreamcatcher Sterretjie Homestay’ of Kamamma Gerty and family. Many community members and volunteers worked on the mural including staff and students from Charlotte Country Day school, USA. Designed by Bruce Rimell here you can read more about some of the personal touches made to the mural by Bruce expressing his love for Gerty and family who he has stayed with during his multiple stays in Melkhoutfontein, plus some additions made in 2019.
