A National Hidden Treasure

The Inherent Nobility of Man scale model at the National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago

The National Museum of Trinidad and Tobago rotates a work from their collection and hangs it in their administrative office. These are rare pieces which may not be shown in their public gallery.

This is the scale model of Carlisle Chang’s, The Inherent Nobility of Man which was commissioned for Trinidad and Tobago's independence in 1962. The work was considered an important artwork in Trinidad and Tobago history, and the controversy over its destruction still remains in debate. The 40-foot mural was destroyed during the renovations at the old Piarco International Airport.
