LE MONUMENT DU MARRON INCONNU, Port-au-Prince, Haïti

The logo : Le Marron Inconnu (The Unknown Runaway Slave)

Sculptor: Albert Mangonès, Port-au-Prince, Haiti, 1968


In Port-au-Prince, capital of the Republic of Haiti, stands a monument erected to celebrate a hero whose name is not remembered: the first African “maroon” of the New World. In this homage to the anonymous hero of an oppressed race, the artist wished to convey a more universal message: that throughout history and beyond all regional boundaries, humanity’s destiny is freedom.


The man represented in this sculpture (bronze, 3.40 meters long by 2.60 meters high) is a half-naked fugitive. At his ankle, the bracelet of a broken chain, his right knee on the ground, his left leg stretched back, his torso arched, he holds in his left hand the conch in which he is blowing to alert his brothers and sisters, his face turned upward toward the sky. In his right fist leaning on the ground he holds a machete bearing the artist’s signature. The conch symbolizes the rallying call to fight for freedom, the machete is the symbol for armed revolt and the broken chain represents rupture from bondage.


A detail from this famous sculpture will be our definitive logo for the ACURIL 46th conference in Haiti.
