Item details

A community mural initiated by Christopher Cardinale swathes the wall of the Robert N. Davoren Complex, Rikers Island. It is a Nelson Mandela-inspired artwork around his famous quote “For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” In this mural, Nelson Mandela has a shining heart over his chest to illustrate strength, perseverance, and love; and a clinching fist as a sign of overcoming huge odds and racism to realize personal potential.
