SACRED SPACE TREE SCULPTURES

This new interesting work of art is the sculpture of many trees on the ocean in Paradise Island, by sculptor Antonius Roberts. Rather than simply cutting these casuarina trees down, Antonius, to commemorate the first landing of the slaves in the Bahamas in a nearby spot, sculpted them intor human figurines. In the artists words, ..."I created this Sacred Space, to be a specific historical memorial in this location as well as to reflect and embody my personal philosophies about art, how it can be used interactively and my profound interest in the conservation, preservation and transformation of our environment". ......

ARDASTRA GARDENS

Situated only minutes from the heart of downtown Nassau, Bahamas, there is no place quite like the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center. The 5-˝ acre park is part jungle, part gardens and home to hundreds of beautiful mammals, birds and reptiles from around the world, including many endangered species from the Bahamas and the Greater Caribbean. ......

THE CLOISTERS

Stroll about the remains of a 14th century French Monastery that was imported, stone by stone, to the United States by the newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst in the 1920s; 40 years later the Cloisters were bought by Huntington Hartford and installed at the top of a hill on Paradise Island overlooking Nassau Harbour.

THE CHANGING OF THE GUARD

At the stately 1806 Government House, at Duke and Shirley streets, you can watch the changing of the guard every other Saturday at 10.

PARLIAMENT

A couple of hours attending a session of Parliament pulled me off the tourist path and into purely Bahamian rituals and issues. Meetings of the 49-member House of Assembly open with style as the bewigged and berobed Speaker parades in. The day I was there, taxes and plunging prices for local crops topped the agenda. When in session, the Assembly usually meets Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 to 1 and from 3 to 7. For session dates, call (809) 322-2041. Spectators must wear jackets and ties (men) or dresses (women). The House of Assembly is in Parliament Square, on Bay Street.
