Lights commissioned by the Toelstede's
Embroideries and metal images hang among the sunflowers in Outa's garden.
Outa's 'karretjie'. Note the windmills that turn as it moves and the embroidery draped around the back. Outa would embroider a map of his journeys- these he calls 'chapters' in his life.
One of the Lighthouses -property of the Toelstede's.
A hand - I was interested that to him the hand was so important; it gave him work and also represented friendship.The heart in the palm is also a known patchwork design - also representing friendship.
A very intricate lighthouse.The ornamentation around the top is made of nozzles from spray cans.
An embroidery.Outa is seen wearing his lappies coat and 'sewing' his philosophies. He refers to himself as a boemelaar (tramp).
