Donkin Mosaic

The 470 square meter mosaic next to the pyramid on the Donkin Reserve is one of the art pieces that has been installed in the area as part of the Route 67 development.  The mosaic celebrates the many cultures, heritages, diverse histories and abundant fauna and flora that characterises the city and province.  The mosaic was done by students from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and is made up of a lot of different details.  I have posted a similar photo as the first picture taken from the top of the lighthouse in the past and somebody commented that they wish they could see a bit more detail.

Its a bit difficult showing detail without having to take a number of closeup pictures, so I have zoomed in to show you as much of the mosaic in one picture as I could.
