Mandela by Marco Cianfanelli  The sculpture, by artist Marco Cianfanelli, significantly comprises 50 steel column constructions – each between 6.5 and 9.5 metres tall – set into the Midlands landscape. The approach to the site, which has been designed by Jeremy Rose of Mashabane Rose Architects, leads one down a path towards the sculpture where a portrait of Nelson Mandela, looking west, comes into focus, the 50 linear vertical units lining up to create the illusion of a flat image.

It has been 50 years since Nelson Mandela was arrested and to mark this anniversary artist Marco Cianfanelli has produced a sculpture to stand in the exact spot he was arrested in Howick, South Africa.
