"Neg Maron"

Image of "Neg Maron"

"Neg Maron" or "Brown Man." It depicts a slave, blowing a conch shell, while holding a machete in his other hand with a broken chain and handcuff. This is a symbol of slavery and freedom, the conch was used to call escaped slaves to gather while in hiding; the machete was used to fight off the French, and was used to cut down sugar cane; and the broken chains symbolize slaves breaking from bondage and reclaiming their freedom.
