Art honoring Mandela around the world
Associated Press
A+ A-

Nelson Mandela became one of the world’s most beloved statesmen when he emerged from 27 years in prison to negotiate an end to white minority rule in South Africa. His generosity of spirit made him a symbol of sacrifice and reconciliation in his country and beyond, something that has been recognized by artists across the globe.

During Mandela’s treatment in June for what the South African government said was a lung infection, an Indian artist wished him improved health with a portrait sculpted from sand. Colorful murals of South Africa’s first black president adorn walls in the cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town, and a snow-dusted bronze likeness of the late leader stands with arms outstretched in London’s Parliament Square.

Here is a look at how some artists paid tribute to him during his life.
