Full image caption

Tom Sugar Cane, described as a 'West Indian', is the caricature of a British sugar planter who has settled in Jamaica to make his fortune.
Sitting on a barrel of molasses in front of his sugar plantation, Tom's body is constructed with the articles of his trade: a barrel of Jamaica rum forms his torso while coaned sugar loaves denote his arms and thighs. He holds a cane in one hand and a beverage in another while African slaves are depicted in the background working in the fields.
