Amos Miller’s portrait of former President Nelson Mandela commemorates his tour to New York city in June 1990 where he was welcomed by two million supporters who reportedly saluted him with a clenched fist: his trademark gesture of solidarity. In the background of the painting the Statue of Liberty seems to mimic this action.
