To mark World Tourism Day today, Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille unveiled a large picture frame that offers a unique view of Table Mountain, one of the New7Wonders of Nature.

The 2.8m tall by 4m wide frame by local artist Porky Hefer is a permanent interactive artwork and is part of the Table Mountain New7Wonders legacy project. It provides visitors to the V&A Waterfront with the perfect vantage point for taking photos of themselves, friends and family with Table Mountain as a spectacular backdrop.

The frame has also been nominated for the list of sites to visit as part of the Cape Town World Design Capital 2014 project, and is the first in a series of New7Wonders legacy frames to be installed throughout the South African city.

“While Table Mountain defines our city, it is much greater than that. It is a natural world heritage site that belongs to all South Africans and, the world,” said Alderman de Lille at the unveiling, which was also attended by City of Cape Town representatives, tourism stakeholders and the CEOs of Cape Town’s Big 6 who signed a Responsible Tourism Charter.

“For all the voters across Africa and from around the world who elected Table Mountain as one of the New7Wonders of Nature in 2011, the New7Wonders legacy frame is an extra visual dimension in how the combined beauty of Cape Town and Table Mountain will be experienced now and in the future,” said New7Wonders Founder-President Bernard Weber.

“We are delighted that visitors to the V&A Waterfront will get to interact with the frame in the build up to World Design Capital 2014,” said Sabine Lehmann, CEO of Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company. “It is a wonderful way to celebrate nature’s perfect design of Table Mountain.”
