Ofili's Maracas

Here is an fine example how an artist's rendering of a wall painting might be mistaken for a Chris Ofili work or better yet. Aptly timed to represent the percussion instrument because Its Parang in Trinidad.

On a wall, the artist has blended the national colours of red, black and white and drawn what appears to be an Asian warrior in silhouette ready for combat. The small airbrushed white dots on either maracas may be the light reflecting off the surface of the calabash. The Maracas is known as the shac-shac in Trinidad and Tobago.
