A community group in Liverpool has been presented with artwork by the daughter of Nelson Mandela.
Mandela8 was set up in 2013 after his death to establish a permanent memorial in the city and create an educational programme as a fitting legacy.
The memorial will be installed in Liverpool's Princes Park and officially opened in 2019.
Members of from Mandela8 and Liverpool City Council visited South Africa to share the designs for the memorial with the Mandela family and were delighted to return to Liverpool not only with the blessing of Nelson Mandela’s eldest daughter Dr Makaziwe ‘Maki’ Mandela for the designs, but the beautiful gift of the limited edition ‘Struggles Collection’ prints.
The collection includes five line drawings depicting the various stages of South Africa’s development and the direct influence Nelson Mandela brought from struggle, imprisonment, freedom, unity and future.
The prints will initially be on display at Liverpool Town Hall until August 24, alongside Mandela's Freedom of the City scroll.
They will then move on to a permanent display in St Georges Hall.
