The King is finished and unveiled! This year has been marked by the creation and completion of the 3m high Swazi King sculpture. King Somhlolo (1815-1836) a 19th Century King of Swaziland has been unveiled in Manzini, Swaziland. It has been quite a journey from the beginning with the Marquette to the installation of the 3m high version. He  stands proudly in the Jubilee Park  and was unveiled by Swazi King - Maswati III. www.sarahrichards.co.za #sarahrichards #africanart #swaziking
