Very "Dusty" Vibes

A popular and loved wall painting covered with specks of white paint

This wall painting is quite liked by thebookmann and was photographed a few years ago. But today at this spot near East Dry River, Port of Spain, the mural is beginning to weather, and soon the "Lion of Judah" and typology "Blessing To All" will be completely obscured by the wrought iron scrapping continually placed on the shed.

Sea Lots, Port of Spain a wall in trust of God

The placing of imagery related to the Rastafarian religion throughout Trinidad, and the Lion of Judah drawn and painted as an emblem of Ras Tafari, the known Ethiopian Emperor,
Haile Selassie. According to the rastafarian belief, Selassie was the Messiah, the second coming of Christ referenced in the Book of Revelation.-thebookmann See others spots at: Lavenitille Princess Town
