Enduring Strength 

To mark the Dec. 5 passing of a revolutionary as revered as Nelson Mandela, BET.com presents a collection of Madiba-inspired sculptures, landmarks and monuments featured in South Africa and abroad. — Britt Middleton and Dominique Zonyéé

This sculpture erected by South African artist Marco Cianfanelli in 2012 marks the site where Mandela was captured and arrested by apartheid police in 1962. Located in Howick, South Africa, it features 50 steel columns measuring 21.32 and 29.52 feet each, created a 3-D image of Mandela's face and representing the 27 years he spent imprisoned for treason. (Photo: EPA/KIM LUDBROOK /LANDOV)
