Exotiquette, Protector of the Mardi Gras Indian Traditions

3,500.00

The special traditions and songs of the New Orleans Mardi Gras Indians tell us a story of deep beauty. It’s not just the beauty of the “pretty” suits but of a blending of cultures that was a creative response to hardship and difficulty. The spiritual power of the Indians in the streets here is one of the most unique parts of our carnival that stirs within us awe and respect.

Dimensions: 30x40 oil on canvas.

Artist’s Note: Many nighttime parades in New Orleans are lit by torch carriers called flambeaux. It is a tradition that goes back to the day before there were street lamps.
