This sculpture has generated tremendous interest locally. Our hope is that it will ultimately find it's true place of honor, where it will be displayed for all the world to understand the journey. Ten percent of the proceeds have been pledged to Madiba's 46664 Foundation.

Everard Reid Gallery

The Madiba Table was on display for a time in the Everard Reid Gallery in Johannesburg. This was quite a task as it takes eight strong men to lift the top slab, which separates from the base.

SHACKLES

While working with these shackles, the reality of what human beings do to one another, was overwhelming and emotional.

All the words of wisdom were hand routered into the wood, and then rainbow coloured glass beads were resined into the cavities.
