Marco Cianfanelli´s monument to Mandela

South african artist Marco Cianfanelli, who was born in 1970, in Johannesburg, has constructed a monument to recognize the 50 year anniversary of peace activist and politician Nelson Mandela's capture by the apartheid police in 1962. The sculpture consists of 50 steel columns which represent the 50 years since his capture, but they also suggest the idea of many making the whole.The shape and form of the sculpture are also representative of the leader's 27 years behind bars for his efforts to bring equal rights and governmental representation to the once racially divided nation. The front of the sculpture is a portrait of Mandela. 

The statue was erected in the countryside , in Howick, a town located 90 kilometers south from the city of Durban in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
