"Voodoo Prayer"
Beads, paint, basswood on a paneled door
This is a good-size piece, about 3 feet wide.
The skulls and passion hearts were
carved from basswood and painted.
The writing in the background is taken from
two Voodoo prayers.
The first asks the spirits of our ancestors
to watch over us.
The second is a prayer to dance,
asking for a little more dancing in our lives.
This is one of my favorite pieces.
