Marie LaVeau and Zombi
12x24" Oil on Canvas
Part of the legend of Marie LaVeau includes Voodoo rituals by Lake Ponchartrain with her pet python, Zombi. Some speculate these antics may have actually been the work of her daughter, Marie the second, capitalizing on her Mother's reputation. Whichever one it was, I was inspired by the image of Marie with her python, making her way to the lake..
