Homenaje a Nelson Mandela
by aixado

Hi all friends! I just finished these two works in pastel, (diptych) my first works of this year 2014. I wanted to do with these works, my little tribute to the person of Nelson Mandela. The white hands are my husband, and black hands are a boy named Bay, this guy sells handicraft at a market in a town of Andalucia. I want to thank Bay, for their kindness and for posing for me. 
I wanted to express in the first work, the tension that existed in South Africa long ago. And in the second, friendship, understanding, union, peace and mutual aid. I hope you like friends!
