Description

This piece is my entry in the PieceMakers Mosaic Artist challenge, themed monochrome.

I have been thinking of making a tribute to Mr. Mandela, but I couldn't decide exactly what to make. Then, when the challenge theme was announced, I knew what I wanted to do. I searched out as many black and white photos of Mr. Mandela, and laid them all out on the table, getting details from each of them.

Then I read and reread all of the books and magazines articles I had, that featured him. The quote that I used is the one that I feel sums up his life and his work. I hope to grow to be one hundredth as free, by this quote's definition, as he was.

For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. Rest in peace, Mr. Mandela. No one has earned it more.

It is 24"x11" and is 7/8" thick. It is made from hundreds of pieces of hand cut stained glass, grout, an mdf base, and clear sealer.

If you would like a mosaic portrait, either in black and white, or color, of a hero, pet or a loved one, just contact me for a quote.

Sometimes, the actual cost, of shipping, ends up being less than charged. If that happens, I refund any overcharge.
