Casted In Concrete - Spiritual Shouter Baptists

Catching the Spirit

In honour of the
Shouter Baptist, San Fernando, Trinidad

This concrete obelisk is erected in recognition to the Shouter Baptist Religion which is practiced in Trinidad and Tobago. One of the most recognized symbols from the
Shouter Baptist is the bell and the sculpture has incorporated a familiar concrete bin with a triangular shape mounted on top of it. The sides of the triangle have the relief of a bell, cross and bible. On this day, March 30th, a national holiday is celebrated in honor of the people who follow the faith.

In Trinidad and Tobago, the sound of the bell once implied that water would soon be locked off.
