In August 2012, in the KZN Midlands, a sculpture of Nelson Mandela was unveiled at the site where he was captured in a road block on 5 August 1962.
The sculpture consists of 50 columns and this represents the 50 years since his capture. If you stand 35 m away, then a portrait of Nelson, Mandela, who looks west, comes into focus. There is a mark where you should stand.
The sculpture is collaboration between the artists Marco Cianfanelli and Jeremy Rose. The 50 steel columns are between 6.5 and 9.5 m tall.
Directions: N3 Highway to Durban/Joburg. Take the Tweedie turnoff to Lions River. Turn right onto the R103. Sculpture is 5 minutes from the N3 and is well signposted.
