The Elephant Series: You can buy my heart and my soul, has previously been exhibited at the Beaufort Triennale (Begium), Museum of Africa (Tervuren, Brussles) and St. Brieuc (France). The sculpture on exhibition at the KZNSA was commissioned by Bert van der Kamp as a memorial for his deceased wife, Annemarie. The elephant houses a heart which, in turn, holds the love letters from Bert and his children to their wife and mother.

The exhibition forms part of the Human Elephant Foundation and is the first time that a sculpture from this series is being exhibited in South Africa.
