Wire Madiba

Walking around one of the craft shops at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town the other day, I came around a corner and face to face with this life sized wire mesh Madiba.  What a stunning work of art and the likeness to Nelson Mandela was amazing.  I wipped out my camera and immediately put it back, walked over to one of the shop assistants, explained that I would like to feature it in my blog and got permission.

Apparently they had two and one has been sold already.  I’m surprised that this one asn’t gone as well as it would make such a stunning centre piece in some office entrance area.

    Neato! That had to have taken quite a good bit of time and patience.
