I Am Because We Are

This stunning 10 story mural has been finally completed by Freddy Sam out in Johannesburg, South Africa. Commissioned by the Maboneng precinct as a gift to the city in memory of Nelson Mandela, Freddy "chose to paint the iconic image of him boxing as he believed all were equal in the ring." Recreating the infamous photo taken by Bob Gosani of Mandela sparring we are reminded of the greatness and inspiration that he has brought to the world. Be sure to check out the detail shots and progress flicks over here at Freddy Sam's page.
