Walk in the footsteps of liberation giants such as Nelson Mandela, Oliver Tambo and Helen Suzman at Maropeng, where 99 striking life-sized bronze statues from the Long March to Freedom exhibition are on display as South Africa celebrates 25 years of democracy in 2019.
In keeping with Maropeng’s mission to profile the human journey from our earliest beginnings, this National Heritage Monument exhibition celebrates South Africa’s own complex journey – and offers a chance to reflect on the realities of the present and the possibilities the future holds during this pivotal election year.
The Long March to Freedom exhibition, previously housed at the Fountains Valley resort in Tshwane, can now be seen at the Maropeng Visitor Centre, thanks to an agreement with the National Heritage Project Company.
Said to be the largest exhibition of representational bronze sculptures anywhere in the world, it has an estimated value of R100-million.
Says Maropeng managing director Michael Worsnip: “The arrival of the Long March to Freedom exhibition is an ode to the veterans and supporters of the struggle for freedom and democracy. The Cradle of Humankind is about the full span of the human journey. This is our South African journey.”
