The Long Walk of Hope


The Long Walk of Hope

"I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony, and with equal opportunities." Nelson Rolinlanla Mandela 1964.
This portrait is by Gary Dadd, and all done in words, which I think is brilliant :)
