Sculpture – Tribute to Marie Laveau
M arie Laveau (September 10, 1794–June 15, 1881) was a Louisiana Creole practitioner of Voodoo renowned in New Orleans. She had great influence over their multiracial followings. As such, she is a great transmitter of African culture and philosophy, as well as, praised for all her good deeds and humanity…
The very close relationship between very ancient African cults and Christian populations has generated a syncretic religion which blends different cultures in one rich, deep, and colorful fusion.
Together, chants, music, ritual objects, and costumes, even though original, are strongly reminiscent of Africa.
