The large scale portrait sculpture entitled Capture was created by Johannesburg artist Marco Cianfanelli. This 31 foot tall sculpture made up of various steel columns is a monument to Nelson Mandela.

It consists of 50 ten metre high laser cut steel plates set into the landscape, representing the 50 year anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s arrest, on August 6, 1962 prior to his 27 years of incarceration.

It is installed at KwaZulu Natal Midlands, South Africa. Cianfanelli is interested in creating art in an unexpected way, he wants to express the complexity of life today

Nelson Mandela’s image can be seen by standing at a certain point where columns come into focus
