Memorial

Nelson Mandela - statue Nelson Mandela - statue

Statue: Nelson Mandela - statue

Erection date: 29/8/2007

Inscription

On the day we visited (two days after Mandela's death) it was impossible to capture any inscriptions due to the crowds and flowers.

Unveiled by Prime Minister Gordon Brown in the presence of London Mayor Ken Livingstone and Nelson Mandela himself.

Mandela, at 6 foot, was a tall man but this statue has a minimal base and, in comparison with the other statues in the square, the figure seems accessible, even small, though it is 9 foot tall.  He is depicted wearing one of his trade-mark zany shirts.

The Morris Singer people in Braintree are proud of this statue.
