COMMUNITY MEANS INTEGRATING BOTH PROFESSIONALS AND CITIZENS
snorre & ladders is the product of an Open Foundry event held at bronze sculptor Guy du Toit’s studio and foundry in Pretoria, South Africa.
Visitors to the foundry were each given a piece of wax and asked to model a moustache that reminded them of Pretoria’s nickname Snorstad (Moustache City). The title of Snorstad refers to the high concentration of stereotypical civil servants and military personnel residing in the capital city – each with a moustache.
A total of 60 moustaches were cast in bronze and sculpted together to make a playful game of snorre and ladders (similar to snakes and ladders)– representing the ups and downs of city life.
