The large scale portrait sculpture entitled Capture was created by Johannesburg artist Marco Cianfanelli. This 31 foot tall sculpture made up of various steel columns is a monument to Nelson Mandela. It is installed at KwaZulu Natal Midlands, South Africa on the same site where Nelson Mandela was arrested in 1962. Cianfanelli is interested in creating art in an unexpected way, he wants to express the complexity of life today. Original source Laughing Squid.
