Isiah Nicholas

Punta I



Punta is one of the many dances of the Garifuna.
The dance is usually between a male and a female. They both do their thing, to the beating of the drums.
Today, because of the Garifuna artist, Punta has become the number one dance.
This dance is fun to watch and can be seen at parties, discos and ninth nights.

- This painting is done with acrylic on canvas
