  • This beautiful artwork by South African artist David Bucklow featuring Karoo Waterpump.

    The American windmill, or wind engine, was invented by Daniel Halladay in 1854 and was used mostly for lifting water from wells. Larger versions were also used for tasks such as sawing wood, chopping hay, and shelling and grinding grain.In early California and some other states, the windmill was part of a self-contained domestic water system which included a hand-dug well and a wooden water tower supporting a redwood tank enclosed by wooden siding known as a tank house. During the late 19th century, steel blades and steel towers replaced wooden construction. At their peak in 1930, an estimated 600,000 units were in use

    In an artistic style that is most definitely photo-realistic and showing tremendous talent and technique in the detailed treatment of his artworks, artist David Bucklow’s content repertoire includes many of South Africa’s iconic landscape and seascape scenes, as well as African portraits.
