Every section of the original Robben Island fence is marked with its own unique ridges and grooves: the poignant scars of history lived and lessons learnt. Which is why a bespoke artwork created by Charmaine Taylor from the original fence is a striking and very special artefact to own and show in your home. This is truly art with heart; a profound, timeless and iconic investment.

Each Legacy Collection artwork has its own unique character, is photographed and tagged with a serial number and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Legacy Collections artwork can be framed in a choice of a white, black or natural dark wood frame, together with a plaque that reads ‘Original fence from Robben Island prison’.
