George Gabb was born in Belize City and educated no further than primary school. At age 13, he began to take up the arts and soon gained a following as a sculptor. Among his many creations are "The Sleeping Giant", a version of which is on the Belize $100 currency note, and the "Freedom of Thought" sculpture at the entrance to the city of Belmopan.
Throughout his life, Gabb received numerous distinctions for the remarkable accomplishments achieved in his fifty years of dedicated service to the arts. Gabb is also known for his books the Naked Eye and The Gifted Giant published by Kriol Gyal Prodokshans and The Image Factory.
He is well known for his ability to give wood a life of its own, but not much is known about George Gabb's masterly with words in both Creole and the Queen's English. Using this talent, Gabb has added one more book to the grey number of local publications. "Naked Eye", is divided into two parts: his original Belizean proverbs and his philosophy of life.
