Jockamofeenanette, Protector of Mardi Gras Indian Tradition


Hey now! My name is Jockamofeenanette, protector of the beautiful and fascinating Mardi Gras Indian culture. I protect spy boys, flag boys, princesses, queens, big chiefs and all who come out to see them on Fat Tuesday and Super Sunday.

Dimensions: 12x16 oil on clayboard

The magic of the 12x16 original paintings comes from the artist laying down and removing oil paint during his process. 

Garland uses different techniques to achieve the mysterious results, always experimenting and letting the music guide his brushes. Most pieces are painted on clay fired boards that are set into substantial wooden cradles creating a ready to hang work of art.

Artist’s Note: While many theories abound about the meaning of the lyrics in the Mardi Gras Indian song “Iko Iko”, some theorize that “jock-a-mo fee na-né” is a mixture of half Native American and half Creole words that mean “It’s a very good year!” ‘
