London - A new and beautiful mural of Nelson Mandela was revealed on Mandela Day, 18 July, in London. This beautiful masterpiece was done by Global Street Art in remembrance of Nelson Mandela. The mural is painted on a building in Mandela Street that holds great significance - in the 1980s it was the headquarters of the African National Congress. It took 12 days to complete, 150 cans of paint, 40 litres of paint and a 15 ton lift. This magnificent mural is 13 meters tall.
A beautiful reminder to everyone across the world that Mandela did not only touch the hearts of South Africans but everyone in the world. Local expats in London have a little bit of SA in Mandela Street.
