CORE VELOCITY, Inc. announced today that it has partnered with a South African company to take on the North American distribution of Nelson “Madiba” Mandela signed Limited Edition artwork.
An opportunity to own a part of history.
With the support of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and the artworks created by renowned South African artist Athol Moult, a project encompassing a series of paintings entitled “Africa Salutes You” has become a beacon of hope for the people of Mvezo.
The artwork tells a story of celebration, inspired by the 2010 FIFA World Cup Soccer and the children of Mvezo. The “Africa Salutes You” initiative will help fund development projects in Mvezo.
Limited edition hand signed original signature of Nelson Mandela Prints are now available in North America as collector items.
“Recent news about the frail health of Nelson Mandela has created a buzz around these prints and avid collectors are showing great interest in capturing a piece of history.”, said Pamela Kaplan (CEO, CORE VELOCITY, Inc.). “Besides the collector value they represent, the artwork is modern and very appealing. The prints have place for those who not only like art but to those that supported and followed their and other countries of interest during the recent world cup in South Africa. This unique historical event is captured in the ‘Africa Salutes You’ collection.”

December 5, 2013 – UPDATE: Nelson Mandela passed away today at age 95 (Jul 18, 1918 – Dec 05, 2013). It is with much sadness that we report this news but look back proudly at the hope, courage and strength that Madiba provided and continues to provide to millions of oppressed people throughout the world, even today. The 2010 project was one of Madiba’s last known public projects. We have only a few remaining prints, box sets and large lithographs available for sale, but will continue to keep the website active by providing other South African unique products to the North American marketplace.
