Kouzen Zaka - Vodou Flag

I have been really enjoying the fact that the usual 50 or so robo-calls a day have ceased.  But it turns out that we have been without phone service at the gallery for the last week!  Apparently a wet cable many blocks west of us, we are told.  
Thank you Verizon!

This flag is being sold by Judy Hoffman for the benefit of the Art Creation Foundation for Children, which she founded in Jacmel, Haiti.

Although still in his thirties, a relatively young age for an established artist, Yves Telemak has become a prominent member of the famous "Bel-Air school" of flag-makers. The son of a respected vodou priest, Yves began his career by working as an assistant in the atilye (atelier) of the Bel-Air flagmaker Joseph "Boss To" Fortine. After learning the craft from "Boss To", Yves ventured out on his own. Eager to design drapo Vodou that expressed his personal artistic vision, Yves transformed a room in his family compound into a small workshop and began making flags.
