The Voting line on the Donkin

My favourite Route 67 art piece on the Donkin Reserve must be The Voting Line.   The Voting Line was created by artists Anthony Harris and Konrad Geel and consist of life-size laser-cut steel figures that form a symbolic voting line celebrating the voters as they were seen in the country's first democratic elections in 1994. At the front of the line stands the figure of Nelson Mandela, fist triumphantly in the air, and a group of children.  The children representing both the future of our country and Madiba's deep care and devotion to childern.
