Jan Van Riebeeck

Groot Jan

KIF. More than 16 years ago a 50 foot statue of that quintessential settler, Jan van Riebeeck, would have been straight up KAK. Now standing as he does, forlorn and a bit lumpy behind a mine dump just up the road from an Adult World, outside the almost entirely forgotten and neglected Santorama Miniland in Turfontein, he’s pretty KIF. Santorama Miniland where colonial “heroes” go to die.

    Don’t they also have a huge and scary Michael Jackson statue?

    looks like a ‘cultural’ version of the garden gnome. Such gaudy, cheerful attire! would make a great debut to a line of these, including, perhaps, the Rhodes gnome, the PW Botha gnome and the Malema gnome?

    To borrow/steal from “Cloudy with a chance of meatballs” – DAMN THAT IS A BIG MEISTER.
