Spathes from the Royal Palm trees that line driveways of Barbadian plantations, are wrapped in vines, cotton and lace and suspended in a gully. Narrow, foliage covered passages between rocky limestone outcrops; gullies are one of the few landscape features that remain intact over the last three centuries. Wrapped spathes transform into bandaged wounds, still dangling across our terrain.
