I love to see art that is part of it’s surroundings and these wood carvings that my parents saw at the Anse Chastenet resort in St Lucia are a fine example. They are by local wood sculptor Lawrence Deligney who seems to come up with something new each year when my parents visit.
After my parents visited Anse Chastenet last year, I wrote about the artists of St Lucia, many of whom have work displayed around the hotel as well as the wood carvings at Anse Chastenet that they saw in the public areas of the hotel.
I think these are a great example of the type of souvenir you can see and enjoy in it’s surroundings, and perhaps buy if they suit your style of decor. I live in a Victorian, traditional English style house, so maybe these carvings wouldn’t fit in, but I love to appreciate this kind of art where it looks best, in the place where it belongs.
And if you want to see what the owners have been building next door to Anse Chastenet check out the review of the sister hotel Jade Mountain over at Mr & Mrs Smith blog. When my parents first saw the hotel being built, they thought it looked like a huge ship about to topple off the cliff, but now it’s finished and the planting has grown up around it’s become a haven of luscious luxury – check out those infinity pools in every room with a view of the Pitons.
