Photographer's Note

I have posted a photo taken outside Mandela's house (now museum really). Next to it lives an artist/sculptor and his co-artists. I had a long conversation with him about inspiration,creativity, artistic independence or vision and salesmanship. The figures you see are quite solid and represent various day to day occupations in towns and villages and from various parts of the country.
I remember that the figures are paper-mache but much sturdier. I found out that one component in the mixture was porridge!

I have read yesterday that Nelson Mandela has been readmitted to hospital and is unable to speak. The world is losing its heroes. All that is left is mostly posturing megalomaniacs in charge of nations.
