Honduras Print by John Holub
11X14 numbered print of painting by artist John Holub of Winthrop, Maine. Net proceeds will benefit Missions of Winthrop Congregational Church, United Church of Christ
The painting is a depiction of several pictures taken on a mission trip to the island of Roatán. The painting depicts a festival at a church in Punta Gorda, one of the earliest churches on the island. Punta Gorda is home to the Garifuna ethnic group. The Garifuna are descendants of West African, Central African, Island Carib, and Arawak people. The British colonial administration used the term Black Carib and Garifuna to distinguish them from Yellow and Red Carib, the Amedindian population that did not intermarry with Africans and deported the Garinagu (Garifuna for the Garifuna people) from Saint Vincent in 1796 to Roatán. Net proceeds from the sale of the prints will be used to benefit missions of the Winthrop Congregational Church, UCC.
