Johannesburg-born artist Marco Cianfanelli’s ‘The Shadow Boxer’ honors Nelson Mandela with a monumental sculpture portraying the late South African president as a young boxer.
Commissioned by the Johannesburg Development Agency in partnership with the City of Johannesburg, this public artwork towers in front of the historic Chancellor House, where Mandela operated the first black law firm in defense of convicted ‘criminals’ who defied Apartheid law.
