Christ of the Caribbean


This beautiful, and nostalgic excerpt is 'borrowed' from News of St. John, April 17, 2017:

'For those of you who are unfamiliar with Peace Hill, it's located off of North Shore Road between Gibney and Jumbie beaches. There's a small parking lot that fits a handful of cars adjacent to a very short trail that leads up to Peace Hill.

There are the ruins of an old windmill at the top of the hill and the views up there are simply stunning. You can see over Caneel Bay and out to St. Thomas to the west, Jost Van Dyke to the north and St. John's North Shore and out to Tortola to the east.

For just over 40 years, a very impressive statue stood high atop Peace Hill, Christ of the Caribbean. Colonel Wadsworth (the owner of the land) commissioned St. Johnians Terrence Powell and Thomas Thomas to construct the statue in 1953. Its purpose was to oversee and bless the land and sea.'

This simple yet meaningful statue had become a symbol of St John's past. We are very pleased to offer a sterling silver rendition by local artisan Tom Krall. Please see below for a size reference.
