NELSON MANDELA STATUE UNVEILED -THE HAGUE

Todays images are of the Nelson Mandela Statue on the Johan de Wittlaan taken on 25 September 2012.

A new ‘statue of Nelson Mandela’ now stands in The Hague’s international district on the Johan de Wittlaan, looking towards the Peace Palace. Standing more than twice life size and unusually at ground level, sculpture Arie Schippers has captured the personality as well as the gait of the man.

Originally scheduled to be unveiled by the great man himself on Nelson Mandela Day July 18th, the unveiling had to be postponed due to Nelson Mandela’s frail health. The Nelson Mandela statue was finally unveiled by Desmond Tutu on the 25th September 2012.

The photos below are of the Nelson Mandela Statue on the Johan de Wittlaan.
