After 10 days or mourning, South Africa has unveiled a new 30 foot statue of Nelson Mandela.
The statue was erected as part of South Africa's Day of Reconciliation celebrations.
The statue is made of bronze and depicts Mandela with his hands reaching outward. It is meant to show that he had embraced the whole nation.
President Zuma spoke to the media after unveiling the statue, and at Mandela's funeral on Sunday, had said: "As your journey ends today, ours must continue in earnest... South Africa will continue to rise because we dare not fail you."
The national flag has been raised from its half-mast position, and is was flying as normal.
