Nelson Mandela: Release

4

Fantastic Four The Thing

Nelson Mandela was arrested on the spot in which this sculpture sits in 1962. He spent 27 years in custody on Robben Island before becoming the President of South Africa. Titled Release, the sculpture is made of 50 steel beams and is between 21 and 31 feet high. Created by Marco Cianfanelli, a South African artist.

A great collection of photos on how the structure was constructed here.
