Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong. The service is not always as economical as it may appear, particularly on larger or more valuable shipments. USPS estimates only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

Edgar Jean Louis was one of the leading houngans and vodou flag makers in the Bel Air neighborhood of Port-au-Prince.  He was born in 1921, and shared a temple with the fellow artist and houngan, Sylva Joseph.  His work was characteristic of the classic Bel Air style of design and craftsmanship.
