Mosaic artists Lovell Friedman and Leora Lewis are the creators of this powerful artwork just outside the Central Library. A mosaic of ceramic tiles forms the image of a child and is surrounded by drawings and written contributions from street children. Look closely and you'll see each tile contains the print of an advert placed in the Cape Government Gazette between 1841 and 1921 calling for ownership of destitute children.
