Mythology in Paarl, South Africa.

There is this small enclosed garden between the workshop and the house of artist Nanette Ranger in Paarl. It’s a different world out there; back to the origins of mankind.

Myths are based on ancient knowledge; from times long before Western- and Eastern religions although these make in abundance use of stories of old. Nanette is inspired by myths; for her it’s a way of re-connecting with who we are.

Her sculptures are fascinating.
