When honoring a #greatman such as #nelsonmandela in #artform, you have to create something that evokes the emotions that we feel when think of him. I think #Southafrican #artist Marco Cianfanelli memorial to Nelson Mandela does that. Viewed in profile, Mandela’s face spans 50 steel columns measuring 6.5 and 9 meters high, anchored to the concrete-covered ground. The shape signifies the leader’s 27 years behind bars for his efforts to bring equal rights and governmental representation to the once racially divided nation. The 50 columns represent the 50 years since Mandela’s capture, as well as solidarity.
