The sculpture captures the Zulu Warrior in dress and stance. I adore that the artist uses a coconut cut in half and hand painted to add to the display. If you've ever caught a Zulu coconut, you know how prized they are.
Only in New Orleans would coconuts, glittered shoes and purses be such treasured collectibles.
Custom made locally by Ann Sarpy, the sculptures are sold at Judy at the Rink.
I love supporting local artists and adding to my ever-growing collection of Mardi Gras collectibles.
