About "Dr Nelson Madiba Mandela"
What made me paint this picture?
The admiration of the man made me do this piece of work, the fact that I am a proud Xhosa made me choose this particular work.
The attire he is in, is a traditional Xhosa wear and it also symbolizes Madiba[0x1]s background, who he is and where he comes from, the history of my heritage.
The richness of the culture, the beadwork on its own has significance to the people which also describes who and what Madiba is about. This also differentiated each of the different xhosa tribes, so by just looking at Madiba[0x1]s clothing you knew which tribe he comes from.
He is one of the world[0x1]s biggest icons and history just surrounds him, he is an inspiration to many and yet he still keeps his roots and stays grounded
