    Prehistoric Dice

    Pay wave

    Just ahead on your right is a sculpture of black granite, situated in front of the entrance to the Spier Conference Centre.

    Make your way over to it.

    This is Prehistoric Dice I by the artist Willem Boshof. The piece is from 2013 and is made up of three polished Belfast black granite dice, placed arbitrarily on a Transkei black granite base.
    Each dice is slightly distorted by its own unique set of historic and geological circumstances and its own submission to chance.

    Boshof said "I polished the granite of the three oblong dice shapes to once more resemble the liquid rock it had been in pre-history."

    Have a closer look and you can see four expressions in Latin on the base, accompanied by English translations.

    When you're ready, continue on the path just to the right of the dice.
