The Brian Lara Promenade Memorial

A model of the Brian Lara Promenade Memorial to the good, bad or indifferent. The subject, Andy James is etched on glass, a young man known as Canada and nicked name saltfish by many women from his district.....hmm. Source: Newsday newpaper

The ghostly image you see is an impression of one of the many people killed in Trinidad by some form of violence in 2008. As a statement to the deep concerns that we all share in Trinidad and Tobago, and for the senseless scourge of crime, the bookman and Adele offer this memorial to Trinidad and Tobago. The project culminated at the Brian Lara Promenade consists of a series of etched plates comprising of an epitaph with the names of the victims. Each plate is numbered. So far the murder figure since the year 2000 has reached over 2000 people. The memorial may be a place for reflection, memory and forgiveness.

The memorializing may lift the heavy burden which this country feels. The influx of crime is due by a general consensus by the introduction of American cable and the deportation of expiates from north America.
