Beautiful tribute to Nelson Mandela
Fifty rods of steel, symbolizing prison bars, so people will never forget the years Mandela was imprisoned …

The remarkable thing about this artwork is that it is only when you stand at a certain distance (which is marked) that you see ….

The Nelson Mandela Sculpture in Howick KwaZulu-Natal South Africa. The artist of the sculpture is Marco Cianfanelli. The sculpture is made up of 50 poles that symbolize the 50th Anniversary of his arrest in Howick KwaZulu-Natal. The poles range in height from 5 meters to 10 meters. When one walks through the poles, the practical pattern gives the effect of a gunshot which symbolizes the political uprising of the ANC . The Length of the sculpture is 20 meters. The front of the sculpture is a portrait of Mandela, it has vertical bars which represents his imprisonment. The portrait of Mandela can only be viewed at 35 meters from the front of the sculpture when all the poles line up. This gives a nod to the fact that Mandela was so hard to capture. Mandela was dubbed "the black pimpernel". Go here to see how it was built: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw66Gd_SXx0
