Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature
The walls, the floor and the roof of the Mpumalanga Provincial Legislature displays the most amazing collection of art. The architectural design of the building, in itself a work of African art, resembles the beehive hut lived in by indigenous people. The pieces of art form part of the Mpumalanga Riverside Government Complex Permanent Artwork Collection, displaying the works of nearly 800 artists from every corner of Mpumalanga as well as national and world renowned artists. Sam Nhlengethwa's "The Miner" and Gerard Sekoto's tapestry entitled "Song of the Pick" are particularly well-known works.
Everything about the Legislature building is art; its internal and external decorations, and the Chamber's 24 panels depicting Mpumalanga's unwritten and untold history. The magnificence of the works in the building places the Legislature on top with the best international tourist destinations.
Visitors are invited to view the collection during guided tours. Tours are free of charge, however, prior booking with Mr. Collen Ndzinisa (013-766 1066) is essential.
