Sculpture description:
This magnificent piece created by SA sculptor, Michael J Mawdsley, depicts Mzilikazi, a Southern African king who founded the Matabele kingdom in Rhodesia (now called Zimbabwe). Many consider Mzilikzi to be the greatest Southern African military leader after the Zulu king, Shaka. `Bayete` is the Zulu word meaning salute. This life-size bronze statue was commissioned for the National Heritage Project - a public display in a South African Nature Reserve - featuring numerous life-sized bronze statues of struggle veterans and freedom fighters dating from the 1600`s to 1994, all standing/walking in a winding procession called "The Long March to Freedom".
