For Auction - Painting of Laurens ten Dam
This amazing piece of artwork captured the aftermath of a crash Laurens endured whilst competing in the 2011 Tour D’France.
Despite a full ‘over the bars’ fall, hitting the surface head first, Lars was bandaged up and continued riding. This stunning 36” x 24” painting perfectly captures the incredible guts and determination these modern day gladiators display whilst riding one of the most gruelling physical challenges in the world of sport.
Our artist David Denison was able to personally reach out to the rider (Lars) and receive his blessing on the painting too!
We will be auctioning the painting (via a silent auction) on the night of our Fundraising dinner in WA in February next year. HOWEVER, for anyone keen on putting in a silent bid beforehand is welcome, please contact Reon Botha who will submit the bid on their behalf.
