On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Carolyn Steyn about Massive Masterpiece for Mandela.
Massive Masterpiece for Mandela.
It’s been termed “the largest portrait blanket in the world”. It’s the face of South Africa’s beloved former president, Nelson Mandela, immortalised in wool – thousands of individual blankets of all colours from all over the world coming together to form the famous face of the man who brought so much hope to so many people. It’s going to cover more than 7000 (seven thousand) square metres – big enough to see from outer space.
It is with this incredible goal in mind that the non-profit organisation , 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day, will descend on the Zonderwater Maximum Correctional Centre in Cullinan on April 24, armed with more than 4000 (four thousand) blankets that been lovingly knitted and sent from all over the world.
