Marine Dynamics unveils artwork Kings Of The Sea in honour of Great White Sharks
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The great white sharks are known as the Kings of the Seas. In honour of the legendary predator that Marine Dynamics has the privilege of working with every day, Wilfred Chivell commissioned an artwork to preside over Kleinbaai harbour. The mythical king of the sea, Poseidon, seemed a perfect fit with the sharks, and artist Jenna Harris combined the two to create a stunning visual that will create photographic opportunities for residents and visitors.
The artwork was officially unveiled on the 15th April by Deputy Mayor of the Overstrand, Dudley Coetzee, and the moment shared with the public. “I want the people of Gansbaai to enjoy this artwork and the stunning backgrounds that can be achieved. The Hermanus cliff path artworks provided inspiration and I wanted to create something similar for our area,” said Wilfred Chivell.
Artist, Jenna Harris, is Durban born and is in her final year articles at Deloitte to qualify as a Chartered Accountant. She has a love for art, in particular painting and drawing, inspired by her mother who is a professional artist. Passionate about the ocean, Harris was happy to work on this project. Harris also created the poetry on the plaque that reads: ‘Mindful of these great white soldiers, I can hear the ocean’s plight. This, one of the last safe havens, A kingdom of light.’
