Paul Kruger removed from Krugersdorp ???

We drove pass the Paul Kruger statue in Krugersdorp and I saw this. My first reaction was that they have decided to remove the statue because it was vandalised before.

How dare they do that!!!

I stopped to find out why they were doing it and was then told that they are art students busy making moulds of his hand , arm and hat.

They are going to use it with moulds from Jan van Riebeeck and Bartholomias Dias in an art exhibition.

Poor Oom Paul wrapped in black bags!!!

Show just what a wrong impression can do to a man.
