The Lighthouse

11,500.00

This sketch depicts the view of the lighthouse on Robben Island. `The Lighthouse’ is a warning beacon to ward off passing ships from the treacherous shores of the island, which has a long history of shipwrecks. To Nelson Mandela the lighthouse on Robben Island resembles a contradiction as both a beacon of hope and a beacon of oppression. Nelson Mandela uses the expanse of the sky behind the lighthouse to emphasise the solitary nature of this structure silhouetted simply and quietly.
