Signal Hill gets Table Mountain picture frame

A giant yellow picture frame, the second in a series of temporary frames to be introduced across the city, has been unveiled on Signal Hill, providing an idyllic vantage point for visitors to compose a photograph of themselves, friends and family with Table Mountain as the backdrop.

The 2.8m tall by 4m wide frame was produced by local artist Porky Hefer to celebrate Table Mountain being named a New 7 Wonder of Nature, and the interactive artwork is an official World Design Capital 2014 project.

“As custodians of the park we focus on managing an ecological system that is a benchmark for the globe, but we are also sensitive to the need to provide spaces for visitors to enjoy these natural wonders,” said Wana Bacela, Area Manager: North, Table Mountain National Park. “This campaign is a wonderful way to give visitors the opportunity to capture Table Mountain’s true beauty within our environment.”

As part of the N7W legacy, the New 7 Wonders Foundation has launched the WonderLove initiative, an international promotion offering couples a chance to win one of seven all-inclusive trips to their favourite New 7 Wonder of Nature, departing from anywhere on the planet. The competition is open to all at www.visit7wonders.com and the winners will be announced on February 14, 2014.
