Right along with braaing, mielie-pap
and words like ‘howzit’, ‘boet’ and ‘bakkie’, rugby holds a special place in
South Africans’ hearts. This is never more apparent than during a Rugby World
Cup and what better to commemorate the special event than with an A1 Poster of
South Africa’s team painstakingly sketched in charcoal: pay R844 for a limited
edition, signed and numbered print or pay R299 for a standard edition print.
Artist Bernadette Campbell has
been sketching since she could clutch a pencil in her fingers and her many
years of experience and dedication can be seen in her work. Choosing charcoal
as a medium for her South Africa World Cup poster, each player has been
portrayed with uncanny character and photo-realistic accuracy leaving you with
an incredible work of art.
Much like an ancient insect caught in the sap of a tree and encased perfectly in amber for eternity, each player has been studied and meticulously recreated, capturing all the fire and passion in their eyes in one piece of amazing art. On the poster you’ll find the full thirty-man World Cup squad immortalised in an unbelievably life-like charcoal depiction. With this one-of-a-kind South Africa Rugby World Cup poster, you’ll be able to keep the memories alive long after the final whistle has been blown.
Superstitious fact: A prominent international rugby player has been rumoured to eat only cottage cheese muffins for the three days leading up to a big game and refuses to drink anything that does not taste similar during this period.
