The commemoration of Karel Landman and his trek, in this 3m globe, was an initiative of the National Party and the councils of the Dutch Reformed Church in two neighbouring villages, Alexandria and Patterson. Legend has it that the councils could not agree which village should 'host' the monument, so it was placed on this remote koppie between the two villages.
