This heroic five-figure fountain-ensemble was commissioned from Herman Wald to honour the men "who pioneered the diamond industry" for the Ernest Oppenheimer Memorial Gardens in Kimberley. The presence of such a fountain in the dry mining city was obviously intended as a symbol of hard work, economic success and good government.
