Caymanian artist Al Ebanks has been commissioned to create two sculptures from his series “Together We Stand” to be featured in the Esterley Tibbetts roundabout near Governors Square and Lime Tree Bay Avenue.

Mr. Ebanks is an award-winning artist and one of the founding members of Caymanian art group Native Sons.

KRyS Global has invested in redesigning the roundabout as part of the company’s tenth anniversary celebration. In addition to the sculptures, landscaping will include local foliage and colored stones.

Kenneth Krys, founder and executive chairman of KRyS Global, said, “We wanted to do something different, to give our thanks to the people of these islands while also paying tribute to the uniqueness of the islands.

“We are particularly thrilled that Mr. Ebanks is collaborating with us, and is using the roundabout as a platform to display his work.

“Ultimately we hope that once the plants mature, the roundabout will become one of the many beautiful landscapes in Grand Cayman.”
