“I am humbled. Seeing the sculpture of the Nutmeg Princess descend into the water made me feel like a child reading the book all over again! It is an honour to know that something so Grenadian and enchanting now has a home at a beautiful underwater park,” remarked Richardo Keens-Douglas.
The Nutmeg Princess has since been republished over six times, has been scripted into a play, and has recently been included in Canada’s top 100 books for children of all time. In the story, the princess is a positive character who represented the land. Her motto being “If you believe in yourself all things are possible.”
This iconic statue now joins nearly one hundred (100) sculptures at the underwater sculpture park that was developed in 2007. The park is an artificial reef that forms a substrate for the growth of marine life. Strategically placed within a Marine Protected Area, this marine gallery can be seen by snorkelling, diving and viewing from a glass bottom boat.
