Rabbit in Mandela statue to be removed

A tiny rabbit is seen in the right ear of a 9-meter bronze statue of the late former South African President Nelson Mandela in Pretoria, Jan 21, 2014. The rabbit, which has yet to be removed, was placed by the sculptors as a "small trademark" after being told they were not allowed to add their signatures to the trousers of the nine-meter bronze statue, according to local media. They said the rabbit symbolised the tight deadline they were working under, as "haas" (rabbit) in Afrikaans also translated as haste, the local newspaper reported. [Photo/Agencies]
