Simphiwe took snaps with statues of Solomon Mahlangu, Steve Biko, Nelson Mandela and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, and many more.
Fans couldn’t get over how gorgeous Simphiwe looked, in a striking black lace outfit.

Others were inspired by the icons of perseverance and freedom, immortalised in bold bronze.
@lebslicious: “Sotja lomkhonto wesizwe”
One fan even cheekily alluded to Simphiwe and Steve Biko as baes.

Briefly.co.za discovered that the picturesque statue garden can be found in Maropeng Visitor Centre, at the Cradle of Humankind, until June 2019.
According to the official Maropeng website, the statues were commissioned by the National Heritage Monument Company and 400 more will be added in the future.
Maropeng managing director, Michael Worsnip, gives insight into the series of inspiring artworks:
“The arrival of the Long March to Freedom exhibition is an ode to the veterans and supporters of the struggle for freedom and democracy. The Cradle of Humankind is about the full span of the human journey. This is our South African journey.”
