BARBADOS’ LONGEST ENVIRONMENTAL MURAL, with its more than 150 000 tile pieces, is well on the way to becoming the island’s most talked about and photographed attraction.

But the unveiling ceremony yesterday for the amazing artistic work covering 4 500 square feet of the front wall outside of CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank’s  corporate headquarters in Warrens, St Michael, came with a reminder of the urgent need to continue to protect and preserve the local environment.

“This mural is not just a beautiful piece of artwork to be admired as we pass through the area; it is a constant reminder that those of us who occupy this island are entrusted with doing our part in preserving it for future generations,” the bank’s CEO Rik Parkhill told the gathering. (TY)
