Check out this incredible Nelson Mandela sculpture

Nelson Mandela’s arrest in 1962, a few kilometres outside Howick KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, was marked by an amazing sculpture by South African artist Marco Cianfanelli in 2012, but I’ve only just come across it (HOW COULD I HAVE MISSED THIS?)

Mandela’s profile is captured in fifty steel columns measuring 6.5 and 9 meters high, each anchored to the concrete-covered ground. The portrait of Mandela can only be viewed at 35 meters from the front of the sculpture.

I don’t know about you, but I think seeing this is worth the price of a plane ticket.
