Hope and Horror giant puppets

The giant puppets "Hope" and "Horror" greeted participants at the entrance to the NGO display area at the United Nations Conference on the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States, held in Barbados in the spring of 1994. "Hope," made of sailcloth and natural materials, symbolized nature and the human spirit. "Horror," made of discarded auto parts, a broken television, and other refuse, symbolized greed, suspicion, and selfishness. The puppets were contributed to the Conference by members of the Baha’i community.
