I shared with you before Mardi Gras a couple pieces of art by Rayne Housey, a New Orleans artist. Each was placed on the mantle for all guests to see the spirit of the Carnival season. The flambeauxs, the Zulu warrior, and the Rex lieutenants on horseback are all classic, New Orleans Mardi Gras icons.
After Mardi Gras I certainly did not want to box them up because each is characteristic NOLA. I decided to hang the three vertically in the stair parlor beside the staircase. I love the look of the gold gild in the room. The glow goes so well with the installation of seeds I shared with you months ago.
Here in NOLA, Mardi Gras spirit is kept in our homes all year long.
