The work on auction is an oil on canvass by the late Lucas Sithole. The size of the work is 61cm by 92cm. I have written confirmation by Stephan Welz & Co in Cape Town setting the auction estimates in respect of this specific work at between R20,000 and R25,000.
This is an opportunity never to be repeated. Place your best bids early!!
