Nelson Mandela – “The Listener”

Portraits and Figures

I sculpted this portrait bust for the 100 Years Tribute Exhibition – Celebrating Nelson Mandela’s Legacy hosted at The Studio Art Gallery in Simons Town.

I have worked on various sculptures of Nelson Mandela, each time with a different focus and message specific to the location or commission.
This portrait was a personal project and I wanted to convey what to me was one of the vital and instrumental characteristics of this great man – that of “The Listener”
