Mandela was from the Thembu tribe. Madiba, his clan name would emerge as the last great liberator of the 20th century. Mandela passed away on the 5th December, 2013 at the age of 95 in Johannesburg. He became president of South Africa in 1994 in the first multi-racial democratic election in which he defeated F.W.D Clerk. In the 1961 Sharpville disturbance, he shift his strategy from non-violence to violence tactics and as a result was arrested and placed in jail for 27 years. This painting mirrors that struggle.
