AP PHOTOS: Art honoring Mandela around the world

An Indian artist wishes Nelson Mandela improved health with a portrait sculpted from sand during his treatment in June for what the South African government has said is a lung infection. Colorful murals of South Africa’s first black president adorn walls in the cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town. A snow-dusted bronze likeness stands with arms outstretched in London’s Parliament Square.
