Mariette van den Heever - "Madiba"

Approx. Weight: 5kg

I did not know what to make, and then i went to a recycle yard and asked a man to collect the can tops for me, after about one month i went back and he had a whole jar full of them, so i desided to make a portrait of Nelson Mandela to see if it will work, and the thing that inspired me the most is the fact that hundreds of people had a finger in making this portrait, and that just symbolised the kind of person Madiba is.
