Massive Mandela Masterpiece Unveiled at Zonderwater Correctional Centre, 24 April 2018.
Itís been termed ìthe largest portrait blanket in the worldî. Itís the face of South Africaís beloved former president, Nelson Mandela, immortalised in wool – thousands of individual blankets of all colours from all over the world coming together to form the famous face of the man who brought so much hope to so many people. Itís going to cover more than 7000 (seven thousand) square metres – big enough to see from space.

It is with this incredible goal in mind that the non-profit organisation , 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day, descended on the Zonderwater Maximum Correctional Centre in Cullinan on April 24, armed with more than 4000 (four thousand) blankets that been lovingly knitted and sent from all over the world.

It is here that this ambitious tribute to late President Nelson Mandela in his centenary year will be constructed. All blankets will be distributed to communities in need throughout South Africa with the help of Stuttaford Van Lines.

School children across the land, church groups, old aged homes, the Johannesburg Society for the Blind, 67 Blankets members in corporations as well as prisoners all around South Africa have participated in the creation of blankets for this project over the past year in preparation for the big event. Blankets have been received from as far afield as England, Wales, Ireland, the United States, Australia as well as hundreds of blankets made by 67 Blankets family members in India.
