Historical Frieze at Voortrekker Monument | Pretoria - Gauteng, South Africa (IMG_0501_02_03_04.jpg)

Historical Frieze at Voortrekker Monument

The main entrance of the building leads into the domed Hall of Heroes. This massive space contains the unique marble Historical Frieze which is an intrinsic part of the design of the monument. It is the biggest marble frieze in the world. The frieze consists of 27 bas-relief panels depicting the history of the Great Trek, but incorporating references to every day life, work methods and religious beliefs of the Voortrekkers. The set of panels illustrates key historical scenes starting from the first voortrekkers of 1835, up to the signing of the Sand River Convention in 1852.
