Nobel Square

pays tribute to South Africa's four Nobel Peace Prize Laureates

Nobel Square in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront pays tribute to South Africa's four Nobel Peace Prize Laureates: the late Nkosi Albert Luthuli, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, former State President F.W. de Klerk and former President Nelson Mandela.

The larger-than-life bronze sculptures of the four Laureates were created by internationally acclaimed artist Claudette Schreuders, reflecting the ambiquities of the search for an "African" indentity in post-apartheid 21st Century. The fifth sculpture in the square, "Peace and Democracy", created by Noria Mabasa, acknowledges the contribution of women and children to the attainment of peace in South Africa.
