Willem Boshoff visits Mogale City
Artist Willem Boshoff popped into Mogale City on the weekend, and left something large behind. Something weighing almost 10 tons. That 10-ton item is a granite sculpture, a long, flat shape called Calculus Moo. Boshoff explains that “calculus” is the Greek word for “pebbles”. Greek children learnt addition and subtraction with the help of pebbles, and would be asked by their parents: “Did you do your pebbles?” ”Moo” is taken from the lettering on the owner’s aeroplane.
