Translation: Good Afternoon
A perfect view of midday on St. Thomas’ waterfront features two historic buildings, the Capitol Building or colloquially, the Legislature or Senate Building built in 1828 and Fort Christian built in 1671. In the piece the artist seeks to capture the essence of the people as they meet and greet at this particular time of day. School children pass by and out of respect for adults say “G’Aftanoon” or “Good afternoon”. St. Thomians are so precise with these customs that they look at their watches to ensure noon has passed and correct themselves and say Good Morning if it is 11:59.
