Lighthouse – Cape St. Blaize
This lovely work was commissioned for a holiday home in the popular coastal holiday town of Mossel Bay on the Western Cape South Coast. The lighthouse was commissioned in 1864 and is a square brick tower, painted white.
It is 14.9 meters tall and the “focal point” is 73 meters above sea level. There is a cave just below the lighthouse that was occupied by inhabitants 200,000 years ago. For more on this lighthouse and others on the South African Coast see Gerald Hoberman’s fascinating book Lighthouses of South Africa
