In a tribute to Cape Town and specially to Table Mountain, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, two famous local artists donated two unique wallpapers installed at the top station of the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway.


The works of art will be exhibited in the Kiosk and The Shop at the Top and were conceived as a symbol of support to South Africa’s tourism. The wallpapers show a landscape with Lion’s Head and vibrant proteas as well as a red lino print of the King Protea, and were created by wall Designer Cara Saven and the botanical artist Hermien van der Merwe in an unique partnership. 


During the official presentation, Hermien stated that “the past two years have been very challenging for the tourism industry and far less people visited our beautiful mountain. I realised that it is time to give thanks. I approached Cara Saven Wall Design to partner with me to give a gift to our beloved Table Mountain and renew the wall coverings in their shops. Cara generously agreed to sponsor the brand-new wall design, using two of my artworks”. 

In this sense, the Retail Executive at the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway, Rianda Williams, commented that “we are so honoured to have this enchanting image welcoming tourists and locals to the Cableway experience. It gives visitors an opportunity for emotional connection to the natural beauty of the landscape, plus, importantly supports two creative women who naturally draw their daily inspiration and strength from our magic Mountain. We are so grateful for this gift”.
