The Right Hand
In May 2003 Nelson Mandela placed his hand in black ink and created an impression of his right hand, the shape of Africa appeared in the middle of his hand prompting the world media to declare "Mandela….the man with Africa in his hand" The badge has been produced from the original image.
This badge has been produced from the original artworks created by Nelson Mandela in 2002. This powerful and thought provoking image was produced from his minds eye. His cell, in fact, looked over a a bleak prison courtyard on Robben Island where prisoners laboured over menial work. Nelson Mandela's cheerful spirit and positive out look are embodied in this image through the use of bright colours and positive subject matter seen beyond the bars of his cell.
