This work was originally cast by the Partners Bronze Age Foundry, Hartbeespoort, c. 1985. It was repatinated and retrospectively stamped by Vignali Foundry in 2019. Six casts and one artist's proof of the work were made by the Vignali Foundry, Pretoria, after 1995.

A gift from the artist to Hannes Harrs, thence by descent.
