Join us on Thursday mornings for our special Sculpture Walk – a guided tour along all the female sculptures on the estate. This experience reaffirms La Motte’s appreciation of the arts and celebrates the important role played by women in society.
Along the Walk, 9 sculptures are visited – from the welcoming Wine Bearer to the sculptures displayed in the La Motte Museum, Wine Tasting Room, Rupert Vinoteque, Pierneef à La Motte Restaurant and the most recent addition, The Kiss in the courtyard.
One of the highlights along the Sculpture Walk is to pause in the J.H. Pierneef Hall of the La Motte Museum, admiring the maquette, Voortrekker vrouw en kinders (Voortrekker woman and children), dated 1938, by South African master Anton van Wouw (1862 – 1945).
The sculptors of the other eight female figures on La Motte, Theo and Toby Megaw – father and son – draw their inspiration from beauty and how it is expressed in society through form, stature and gestures, encouraging an individual experience and interpretation as well as dialogue between sculpture and viewer.
As a toast to this unique acquaintance with art, the La Motte Sculpture Walk is concluded with a tasting of the estate’s limited release La Motte Methôde Cap Classique and an elegant traditional French Madeleine under the age-old oak trees in La Motte’s garden.
*Please note for bookings between 20 July and 3 August 2017 the walk will exclude the tasting of the estate’s limited release La Motte Methôde Cap Classique and elegant traditional French Madeleine. Due to the winter closing of the restaurant.
