Johannesburg – Durban artist Lungelo Gumede has shared his latest wax sculptures with fans on Twitter and it seems to be a hit.
His other works includes wax figures of Michael Jackson, Hugh Masekela and current SA President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Posting a video of his brand-new art pieces, Lungelo wrote: "Here is my latest edition of Mama Winnie and Tata Nelson Mandela life size figures. I hope @ZindziMandela approves and we can make a bronze for the Winnie Mandela Airport in Cape Town."
Twitter users were blown away by the accuracy and detail of the figures – from the clothing, right down props like Winnie's glasses and jewellery.
