NAACP award given to Whitney Houston in 1993 for "Outstanding Female Artist" for the soundtrack to the film "The Bodyguard." The award features a silver colored metal figure of a man kneeling with his arms overhead and looking upward at a globe he holds, similar to representations of the mythological character Atlas. The globe is oriented with the continent of Africa facing front. The figure is screwed from below to a two-tiered wooden platform painted black. A silver plate is nailed around the exterior side of the bottom tier and is engraved with text reading: 26th Annual NAACP Image Awards / 1993 / OUTSTANDING FEMALE ARTIST / WHITNEY HOUSTON / "THE BODYGUARD SOUNDTRACK".
