Obviously the headline writer was acquainted with the 23rd Psalm.

I wonder if Isandlwana really looked like that back then. Quite a formidable rock! It would certainly rule out the suggestion of climbing onto the plateau area.

Hi Impi,

The artists rendition of Isandlwana is not at all truly representative as there is considerable exaggeration of the vertical perspective. It is steep indeed , but not as depicted.
A nice piece of art nonetheless for the collection.

regards,

barry
