Robben Island Revisited

By Marc Alexander from his Nelson Mandela Collection. Robben Island Revisited, oil and gold leaf on canvas, 130cm by 90cm, (2014).

In this portrait Marc has portrayed Mandela revisiting Robben Island, his eyes turned to heaven and hands lifted in praise to the Almighty. Marc believes that Nelson Mandela was raised as a leader by God to turn South Africa away from the brink of civil war. Here we see a man who chose forgiveness over bitterness and unity over vengeance. Mandela once said, “There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.”
