"At 1.8 metres tall‚ the Nelson Mandela Statue is the only life-size statue at the United Nations headquarters‚ signifying the role he played in unifying the world under the banner of peace and conflict resolution‚" the South African presidency said.

Times Live reports that the statue was created by South African sculptors Andre Prinsloo and Ruhan Janse van Vuuren, the same team behind a nine-metre bronze Mandela statue at the Union Buildings in Tshwane, the headquarters of the South African government.

Quote Message: We trust that this statue will remain a constant reminder to the international community of the dedication of Nelson Mandela to the mission of the UN and a constant affirmation of South Africa’s commitment to contribute to a better world for all."
