Some of the finest art in the Caribbean has come from Jamaica: “Bird Man” ~ a fabulous, over five hundred-

year-old, Taino Indian woodcarving of a part bird, part human creature: Sketches of the Jamaican Jonkonnu masquerade from the 1830s, parodying European culture: Political sculptures such as “Negro Aroused” by Edna Manley. A modern example is Eddie Chambers “Untitled” in which the colors of the British Union Jack flag have been replaced with the Rastafarian red, gold and green. ~  Ship Card (visiting Island F-48)
