This model is inspired by the poem of the same name “Invictus” by William Earnest Henry. Invictus, meaning unconquerable or undefeated in Latin, was written in 1875. Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader regularly recited this poem while he was imprisoned for his political activism. He later became the President of South Africa, who won the heart of people, united the nation and overcame racism.
In recent years, people all over the world have united and fought through hardship.
This model serves as a reminder that it takes perseverance and resilience to overcome struggles.
It gives hope that better days are ahead of us as long as we never give up.
