Work on web:
The sculpture is unfinished, signed "L T Sith" (note the incomplete signature!) - it seems the first owner demanded a security for monies personally advanced to the then very sick artist before he had finished and polished this sculpture (telephonic conversation of 4.8.1994). This was Lucas SITHOLE's last sculpture before he died from cancer in Jozini in May, 1994.
