The defacement of the iconic statue with red paint was highlighted in The Gleaner Online yesterday.
The statue which was cleaned by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust (JNHT), an agency of the Ministry of Youth and Culture, is part of the nation’s network of national monuments and heritage sites which fall within the portfolio of the Ministry of Youth and Culture and for which the JNHT has oversight responsibility.
The Culture Ministry is urging all persons to protect and preserve Jamaica’s cultural and national monuments.
Minister of Youth and Culture, Lisa Hanna says cultural and national monuments and heritage sites help in the creation of national identity and play a critical role in building national pride, especially within our children and young people.
The statue which is prominently positioned at the entrance to the National Stadium was built by renowned Jamaican sculptor Alvin Marriott.
