JA NEE!! ANOTHER SCULPTURE FROM EUGENE BROCK
Remember the Rhino sculpture we posted a few weeks back. This one sent by Eugene to is very different. He calls it Ja Nee! And he writes This sculpture is based on a piece from one of Laurence v/d Posts books. He (v/d Post) writes about two oomies sitting on the stoep drinking koffie and smoking their pipes, looking out at the vlaktes, saying nothing for about 20 minutes. Then one says(still looking out at the vlaktes), " Ja-Nee" The tone in which it is uttered - full of meaning because it is based on the utter acceptance of the fact that at heart,life and the nature of truth which gives life its direction,are inexorably paradoxical - man is an embodied paradox, a bundle of contradictions " quote L v/d Post.
