One on the finest collections of original South African art adorn the walls of our fondouk and guests are encouraged to linger awhile to appreciate South Africa's finest artworks. A Tienie Prichard sculpture of Salomé stands in the foyer and welcomes guests while at the same time emphasizing the drama of stepping back in time to a period of forgotten elegance, charm and grace. Among contemporary works of art in the collection, are a number of masterpieces. The unique Royal Hunt is not only one of Tienie Pritchard's finest achievements but is surely one of the greatest masterpieces of modern South African sculpture, complementing Adriaan Boshoff's The Day's Catch and Conrad Theys's Kokerbome. The diverse collection of paintings range from landscapes to monumental figure compositions by artists such as Gregoire Boonzaier, Titta Fasciotti, Dino Paravano and Rose-Innes. Within The Orient's public rooms, Errol Boyley's painting of his favorite fishing spot, may be compared with the graciously beautiful classic work of Idyllirium by Aleta Michaletos, specially created for the foyer over a period of nearly two years. Over the past twenty years the owners not only enjoyed befriending the majority of these artists but also setting them free to explore their innermost desires to create that one piece that they themselves will consider to be the pinnacle of their own creative passions. They can recall the purchase of every piece and have a story to tell about every one. Visit us and let the artists speak for themselves ....
