Australian Himalayan Foundation (AHF) End of Year Fundraiser. Thank you to World Nomads for supporting the AHF by purchasing Keifer's Nepal in the Silent Auction. "This six month project was originally inspired by Anslem Keifer's "La Ribaute" installation near Barjac, France. Early in the construction of this 1 metre tall fired clay sculpture, in April 2015, Nepal was devastated by an earthquake. This altered the development of the newly named "Keifer's Nepal" into its final form.
Newport Sculpture Trail - The third in Ron's Keifer Series, Keifer's Beach, was one of thirty sculptures chosen for the 2015 Newport Sculpture Trail. "Keifer's Beach was inspired by a combination of Anselm Keifer's installation in Barjac, France and the natural beauty of Newport Beach.
