Candelabrum in St. James

In Judaism, a candelabrum with seven branches is used in ceremonies to symbolize the seven days of Creation. The graffiti artist who is responsible for these Judeo-Christian inscriptions has done his home work. The candle stick indeed has seven holders along with some biblical quotations that occupy the walls of a cemetery, St. James, Trinidad.

Before the current influx of graffiti artists,
dating back from the 1990s, this work and works like it was sprayed in blue paint in parts of the capital, Port of Spain.
