Historical Context:
Edna Manley Centenery was born in Yorkshire, England. In 1932, she moved to Jamaica with her husband in order to pursue her career as a sculptor, creating images that reflected Jamaica's struggle for nationhood. During the 1930s, while continuing to exhibit in London, her focus on Jamaica became more and more prominent, and she spent much of her time supporting the development of the arts and black pride in the region.
