Paradyskloof, Stellenbosch

The forest in Paradyskloof outside Stellenbosch presented Strijdom with the ideal setting to make a work he had previously executed elsewhere, including in a wintry snow-covered forest outside the small town of Kamenický Šenov in the Czech Republic and once in the sunlit Tokai forest in Cape Town. Passersby commented as Strijdom was on the ladder, fastening the red fabric to the tree trunks, one of them quipping that he had always thought, from the song, that it was supposed to be a yellow ribbon.
