Sculpture Park – University of Technology, Kingston, Jamaica – Part #3


Here is the next part of the interesting sculptures at the Sculpture Park at University of Technology in Kingston, Jamaica.
This one I found quite interesting. I am not sure if I fully got the meaning of this sculpture, but I can see a man and a woman standing in the water, maybe river or sea. They thoughts are free like birds over their heads. It reminds me to some extend of Adam and Eve, until they didn’t sin against God. They didn’t feel shame to be naked, their hearts and minds were pure and free.

“Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.”
Genesis 2:25

Prof. Manuel Mendive Hoyo, author of the statue “Free Thought” is from Cuba. You can check some of his next projects here.

Veliko Tarnovo – the city with a history of more than five millennia


This post wouldn’t come alive if my friend from wordpress – Dan – wouldn’t offer me a deal to post some photos of this beautiful historical town in Bulgaria. So we did a deal – I will post some photos from my archive and he will post some as well. I like challenges so why not?

You can check his photos here

Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria 
Beautiful town with rich history. I have been there in 2010 and 2011 and I was told Veliko Tarnovo was the historical capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire.
Since I love history, castles and castle ruins it was a pleasure for me to take a walk through this beautiful town.

Few facts about Veliko Tarnovo (Велико Търново)
* one of the oldest settlements in Bulgaria, with a history of more than five millennia
*the first traces of human presence, dating from the 3rd millennium BC, were discovered on Trapezitsa Hill
*is often referred to as the “City of the Tsars”
* the city was built on three hills: Tsarevets, Trapezitsa and Sveta Gora
*city with unique architecture
*home of two major universities
*foremost educational and cultural center
