Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

An embassy is the face of a country in a foreign land. A few days ago, I had the privilege of visiting the South African Embassy in Germany. When this building was designed in the early 2000s, the aim was to portray and honour the diversity of the country, as well as to express something of South African hospitality and openness. In my opinion, they managed to achieve both!

  1. This is was a cool glimpse into the South African embassy in Germany, I liked the multiple languages to say welcome and that four panel piece with the faces, do you know what that one is called?

    1. Thank you! Unfortunately I don’t recall either the name of teh piece or of the artist, sorry. It depicts the lonelines people feel as they arrive in Johannesburg from the countryside, looking for work.
