FREDDY SAM PAINTS MASSIVE MANDELA MURAL

Local artist Freddy Sam was commissioned by the Maboneng Precinct in Joburg to paint a mural to commemorate Nelson Mandela, as a gift to the city. The mural is ten stories high and is based on the photo below, which was taken by Bob Gosani. It took Freddy Sam four days to do. Apparently is it based on Mandela’s definition of “Ubuntu” i.e. “You cannot be human all by yourself.”
