St. Jacques - Vodou Flag

Indigo Arts' Philadelphia gallery space will be closed during the month of April as I move upstairs to a new space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I hope to be up and running again in May, on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery will be operating as usual, though shipments may be delayed a bit.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

Thanks,

Tony

Edgar's Studio, Bel-Air, Port-au-Prince, 1995 (Photograph © Anthony Hart Fisher 1995).

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.
