Final three vying to replace Nelson
The Ministry of Culture revealed the three finalists in the Monument Design Competition to replace the statue of Lord Nelson in National Heroes Square, The City.
The three designs going forward are ‘We Loyal Sons And Daughters All’ by Vincent Jones and Hugh Holder, ‘The Monument To The Barbadian Family’ by Kevin Talma, and ‘Reunion’ by Sheena Weekes, Israel Mapp and Jamal Weekes.
Special adviser to the Division of Culture, Senator John King, said he hoped the entries which did not win would be used elsewhere.
“I believe this has been a fantastic effort by all concerned. I’m very happy to see where we’ve reached. The entries are exciting and the stories behind these artistic pieces are intriguing. I am hoping that even though there can be only one winner for Heroes Square, we can still find a way to utilise the others in other parts of the country,” he said yesterday at Sky Mall.
The winner will be notified by November 23 and then publicly revealed two days later. (Nation News)
