Best Village Soca Warrior's Prop

Trumpets, footballs and steelpan players

This is to honour the Soca Warrior Football Team on their road to the Worldcup in Germany, 2006. The sculpture looks like a Best Village prop with silhouettes of trumpets, footballs and steelpan players. The work was moved from around the Savannah to this spot, opposite the former Holiday Inn hotel in Port of Spain. 2006

Best Village is a cultural competition involving all grassroots in Trinidad and Tobago. Generally, it is a kitsch interpretation of what art and culture means in communities and districts.
