Visited the sculpture and the museum at the Capture Site of Nelson Mandela - very poignant, given the medical condition of this world icon at this time (27th June, 2013). The sculpture is superb - only as one nears the steel structures does the image of Mandela's head begin to emerge - till, finally, it is readily apparent. Art - creativity - at its best - not to mention unique.
The museum is in a "shed" of sorts - the austerity of the environments adds to the impact of the material contained therein. An excellent portrayal of the man's life - simply, evocatively, powerfully.
I would heartily recommend this museum. Yes, it's a bit of a walk down to the sculpture (again, very powerful, as the banks are high as one walks down the hillside - descending to what is something of a "blot" on apartheid years South Africa [Mandela's capture] - hinting at the depths to which humanity will sink in pursuit of a misguided ideal), but it is wheelchair accessible and there are benches located strategically for those who'd like to take a gentle, contemplative stroll - or even for those who'd just like to catch their breath on the way up.
The day I went, there were families, couples, young children, friends - all ages, ethnicities, many different nationalities - and many were deeply moved as well as having the "a-ha!" moment when the sculpture "make sense"!
