Youths pose for photographs as they climb on top of a sculpture in the form of a giant pair of spectacles on Cape Town's Sea Point Promenade, November 18, 2014.  Inspired by Nelson Mandela, the work  'Perceiving Freedom' by artist Michael Elion has stirred some controversy in the local media. While popular with visitors to the promenade, some critics have questioned the association of Mandela's legacy with commercial sponsors.
