Welcome Home, a monument to freedom

A model for a sculpture commissioned as a commemoration for the international peace and reconciliation center on Robben Island, South Africa, the former prison where Nelson Mandela and thousands of others were imprisoned. Since free elections in 1994, the island has now been transformed into a national monument. A commemoration for building a peace center on Robben Island, South Africa, the former prison where Nelson Mandela and thousands of others were imprisoned. All the people of South Africa have known exile. Whether it was the brutal victimization of millions under the oppression of apartheid or the isolation of the Afrikaner nation from the international community, all have known the bitter taste of banishment. From now on there are no more exiles. All of my children belong. My beautiful ones, Welcome home!
