Larger than life-sized statue of unknown slave, with broken shackles. Named "Slave in Revolt" by its creator, the Barbadian sculptor Karl Broodhagen, this statue was commissioned by the government of Barbados to commemorate the 150th anniversary of slave emancipation in the British colonies; it was unveiled in March 1985.
