Marassas Vodou Banner
Roudy Azor (Port-au-Prince, Haiti)
Sequins and beads on fabric (19 1/2" x 15 1/2"),
A rare three-headed, four-breasted interpretation of "Marassa Trois" the loa of twins and triplets. This flag is extremely densely beaded and sequinned (and thus extremely heavy), in the manner of the artists Constant and Simeon.
Exhibited at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center, Millville, New Jersey (July to December, 2016) for exhibit: Shades of Past, Colors of Present: Preserving Caribbean Cultural Heritage in New Jersey.
