MANDELA'S STATUE AT THE UNION BUILDING
The largest statue in the world of Nelson Mandela was unveiled at union building in south Africa, on Reconciliation Day ,the 16 December 2013; 24 hours after the revered former President was buried in his home village of Qunu.
The 9m (30ft), 4.5 tonne statue of Mandela was unveiled by president Jacob Zuma. It stands in Pretoria, in front of Union Buildings, South Africa's house of Parliament, which is also celebrating its 100th anniversary, and which was the venue for the late President Mandela's lying-in-state prior to his funeral.
Unlike many Mandela statues around the world which have the former African National Congress leader displaying a clenched fist, symbolising his campaign against the racial segregation era of Apartheid, the new statue has his arms outstretched, seeming to call viewers into his embrace.
It was made by South African sculptors Andre Prinsloo and Ruhan Janse van Vuuren. It stands overlooking Union Buildings' lawn
