Artwork of the week: PANTHERA PARDUS by Roberto Vaccaro

Roberto Vaccaro

Mixed media metals

I’ve been lucky to meet an incredibly talented young sculptor who’s based in George. Roberto Vaccaro works with scrap metal to create majestic and anatomically correct sculptures of animals and human figures. I especially admire his sculptures of the big cats. His mother works with the Landmark Foundation. One of the aims of this NGO is tracking and researching the leopards in the Garden Route area, and managing the relationship between these beautiful predators and landowners/farmers.
