Moving into Dance is recognized as one of the three sentinels guarding the court. β€œThe sculpture consists of seven figures in motion, a representation of South African democracy, a harmonious collective gender, race and creed - a symbol of the transition of our society as we move together from the old into the new South Africa. Sometimes in conflict, but mostly in harmony.”
