The original charcoal sketch was created by Nelson Mandela in July 2004 when completing a collection of works based on generic symbols. “Earth” consists of two Crescents, representing oceans and land. In this sketch the “Ocean Crescent” embraces the “Land Crescent” just as the oceans surround and embrace the land. “We are all Islands, but the Oceans bind us together” he said when asked what the image represented to him.
