Motivation by Nelson Mandela

Personally signed by Mandela – Please note this edition is being sold in the official gallery for £7500 and this is without the full conversation framing. Plus it is a low number.

Nelson Mandela was incarcerated on Robben Island for 17 years. Now in his eighties, he has endeavoured to capture his feelings towards the period he spent there with a series of lithographs.

Since the launch in 2002, the value of these extraordinary pieces have more then doubled, leading critics to say, “the pieces are charming and iconic - his work is highly accomplished” The Guardian.

’Motivation’ are his handwritten notes, which is personally signed by Mandela at the bottom of the print.

Today when I look at Robben Island I see it as a celebration of the struggle and a symbol of the finest qualities of the human spirit, rather than as a monument to the brutal tyranny and oppression of apartheid.

Robben Island is a place where courage endured in the face of endless hardship, a place where people kept on believing when it seemed their dreams were hopeless and a place where wisdom and determination overcame fear and human frailty.

It is true that Robben Island was once a place of darkness, but out of that darkness has come a wonderful brightness, a light so powerful that it could not be hidden behind prison walls, held back by prison bars or hemmed in by the surrounding sea.

In these sketches entitled I have attempted to colour the island sketches in ways that reflect the positive light in which I view it. This is what I would like to share with people around the world and, hopefully, also project the idea that even the most fantastic dreams can be achieved if we are prepared to endure life's challenges.

This superb limited edition of 2500 is now very rare and is being offered for sale with full conservation glass framing to protect the print for years to come.

Measures in at a large and impressive 780mm by 680mm with double mounts and slip frame insert to match the stunning gold surround.

It is supplied with the original certificate from the Mandela foundation and a photo of the signing (as shown).

The edition number of is 119 that is considered more appealing as its a low edition number.

The image does not do this imposing piece justice as it looks stunning and is presented in excellent condition. Due to the size of this item, delivery methods will need to be discussed.

A superb item to celebrate the great man's life.

Please note that for financial security we can only consider a bank transfer as payment for this particular piece.
