Mandela Sculpture by Marco Cianfanelli (3)

In Howick, South Africa, an honorary sculpture was built by Marco Cianfanelli to mark Mandela’s arrest 50 years ago by the apartheid police. The installation includes 50 steel columns that symbolize prison bars, and if you view them at certain angle, you can see Mandela’s face.
