Grace, Glamour, Gorgeous
Grace, Glamorous, and Gorgeousness – these are among different genres of “gyrations” portrayed by these lovely ladies, the embodiment of festive ecstasy. Together, they portray a tapestry of total unity, total joy, mutual abandonment of care and concern for other facets of life. Look closer ……… each remains encased in her own bejeweled box, her own ivory tower, although they are in the selfsame band, under the same sun and gyrating to the selfsame music. Each is in her own cluster.
Although all move in time to the music, some hear different beats. Moreover, the levels and styles also differ dependent on the cluster with which each lady aligns herself.
There are even gyrating cliques; cliques of friends, cliques of geography, cliques of ethnicity, cliques of class. . .
There is so much beauty to be beheld! There’s daring and dazzle in the dance, grace, giving, glamour, gorgeousness and yes …………… the optimum optical feast of gyration!
The Artist is reflecting on the festive celebrations of the annual exotic masquerade street-parade which Trinidad & Tobago proudly label’s “Carnival, The Greatest Show On Earth’. This is where the world’s 100-plus Caribbean-styled carnivals got their embryo
In the midst of it all though, the Artist is also lamenting the disappearance of creativity in the costumed portrayals of bands during the Carnival. Is it merely a panorama of bare and lovely legs and gyrations, garnished with differing levels of daring?
