Nelson Mandela - Impressions of Africa - Left Hand - signed by Nelson Mandela - Artists Proof - one of only 25 in the World

“These sketches not so much about my life as they are about my own country, I drew hands because they are powerful instruments, hands can hurt or heal, punish or uplift. They can also be bound but a quest for righteousness can never be repressed. In time, we broke loose the shackles of injustice, we joined hands across social divides and national boundaries, between continents and over oceans and now we look to the future, knowing that even if age makes us wiser guides, it is the youth that remind us of love, of trust and the value of life.”

“Impressions of Africa” 







Africa has historically had a capacity for suffering which has often seemed almost infinite. 

Following slavery and colonialism, a new scourge, HIV, is afflicting millions throughout the continent. 

In the second of these works, the imprints of the hands of children affected by HIV surround that of Nelson Mandela's left hand and this image has a haunting sadness as it reflects Africa's new and truly tragic dilemma. 

The numbers of those already afflicted by this terrible disease are truly appalling and the forecasts are absolutely chilling. 

Nelson Mandela,  resolute as ever, is once again reaching out to answer the new cry from those suffering in his beloved country.

Size: W:50cm x H:65cm
