Tybee Island Quarantine
The mouth of the Savannah River is where most Africans entered the country as slaves. The river mouth has several islands, one of which was for a short time used as a quarantine station. The number of individuals who died within quarantine remains unknown. This piece is made in honor of their bones which now haunt the island.
This original piece is made with archival acrylic paint on a raised birch wood panel. Includes title, date, and artist signature.
It measures 18" L x 14" H x 1.5" D, and arrives ready to hang, including drywall mounts.
