One in a million This eye-catching wall art in Laura Matzner’s home in Paternoster has a fun surprise element with one fish swimming against the flow. The wooden fish were carved from invasive species by craftsmen in the Eastern Cape. “Their original carvings were slightly more rustic but they sanded this school of fish smoother specially for me. Generation gap Inspired by an exhibition of Austrian painter Gustav Klimt’s work, Nicky Myburgh, head of exhibitions and product co-ordinator for Kamers, decided to create a permanent artwork in her historic Stellenbosch manor house. “An artwork like this, that cannot be removed, is a gift from our generation to future generations,” she explains.

I was feeling raw and vulnerable, the other day, when a neighbour arrived with a bowl of figs. ‘Adams’ figs. Favouritest of favourite food! Soul food. Almost black in their purpleness, plump and generous. Full of sweet promise. Normally my mouth would be watering so much that I’d barely be able to mutter my thanks before accepting such a glorious gift. But this time it was different. Because my heart was bruised, all shrivelled. Once the kind giver had departed, that bowl of figs and I quietly contemplated each other in silence – them in their voluptuousness and I from my place of pain. Only then did I feel a slight stirring deep inside, something shifting, opening up just enough to let in the light. Because, you know, a fig is not just…
