Nelson Mandela Sculpture

mandela_sculpture

It’s a stunning monument of Nelson Mandela with an interesting symbolic meaning. The statue was created by a South African artist Marco Cianfanelli to recognize a 50-year anniversary of the imprisonment of Mandela and put at exact spot where Nelson Mandela was arrested. This prominent peace activist was captured by the apartheid policy in 1962 and spent 27 years in prison. The monument is constructed out of 50 separate steel bars to represent 50 years since the capture.
