Artist's Description

De Rust is a small village at the gateway to the Klein Karoo. (South Africa) I saw this well-known and lovely Afrikaans poem painted on one of the shop’s walls in town. De Rust might be small but it is charming and has become something of a haven for artists and is famous for its dessert wines and cheeses.
De Rust is located at the foot of the Swartberg Mountain range between Oudtshoorn and Beaufort West. (South Africa)
De Rust is also known for the meandering Meiringspoort pass.
This area is also well known for Ostrich farming and most of the farmers in the area either farm exclusively with ostriches or as a sideline to their existing farming.

TRANSLATION of the poem:
Mý girl is in a naartjie,
my grandma is in cinnamon,
there’s someone… someone in anise,
there’s a woman in every aroma!
or:
“My girl is in a naartjie (tangerine), my grandmother in cinnamon.
There’s someone, someone in aniseed.
There’s a woman in every flavour.”

Sproeireën
My nooi is in ‘n nartjie,
my ouma in kaneel,
daar’s iemand, iemand in anys,
daar’s ’n vrou in elke geur!

As ek ’n stukkie nartjieskil
tussen my vingers buig of knak,
breek uit die klein sproeireën
wat geurend om my hand uitsak,
die boorde weer van Swartfoloos
en met die nartjies om my heen
weet ek hoe dat ’n vrou kan troos.

O my nooi is in ‘n nartjie,
my ouma in kaneel,
daar’s iemand….iemand in anys,
daar’s ’n vrou in elke geur!
D. J. Opperman.
