Olympic Africa Commissioned to commemorate the Cape Town bid to host the 2004 Olympics. The bid adopted the theme of "human development" and intended to modernize an urban slum township. Melded together among the shapes of diverse stripes representing African nations are four individual athletes: runner, a swimmer, a gymnast and a soccer player. Turning the sculpture around the figures turn into stripes that form the African continent.
Bronze casts of the sculpture we used to promote the bid, one of which is displayed in the Olympic Museum in Lucerne, Switzerland.
