CHINA-SAFRICA-POLITICS-ART-MANDELA

This photo taken on August 1, 2013 shows Shanghai based 34 year-old Belgian artist Phil Akashi sitting in front of his portrait of South African peace icon and former boxer Nelson Mandela, which he forged by pounding the wall 27,000 times with a boxing glove which bore the Chinese character for 'freedom', in Shanghai. Mandela, who's 95th birthday earlier this month was marked in South Africa by an outpouring of charitable deeds, with many people offering 67 minutes of service for the 67 years he was in public service, continues to show signs of improvement after two months of hospital treatment.
