This sketch depicts a view of Table Mountain through the bars of a prison cell on Robben Island. In fact Table Mountain is not visible from the prison cell windows, however, the view depicted in this piece idealises one that resembles freedom and beauty to Nelson Mandela during his incarceration. `The Window' is one of the few sketches where colour is used throughout indicating the deep emotional value and meaning attached by Nelson Mandela.
