Abstract


A SELECTIVE STUDY OF THE SCULPTURE OF THE SOUTH AFRICAN NATIONAL MUSEUM OF MILITARY HISTORY

The following article assumes the character of a photographic essay. Through the medium of a highly selective study of the sculpture displayed at the South African National Museum of Military History, Johannesburg, it is intended to illustrate one aspect of the rich artistic resources displayed at this Museum. The critical aesthetic evaluation of the sculptured pieces related to this study are totally excluded from the writer's terms of reference. (He is, in any event, totally unqualified to proffer aesthetic judgements). Nevertheless, the writer has felt at liberty to project his individual, subjective response to the pieces discussed.
