Sky's variation to the Haitian art form of the sequin-covered Drapo Vodou or "Voodoo Flag". Vodou Drapo often tell a story of a loa (vodou spirit) that they associate with and are sewn while singing the praises of that loa. Each flag depicts the vévé symbol or image of the loa to which it is devoted. The flags are sewn with thousands of brilliant sequins and beads. The densely beaded flags of many of today's finest artists may take months or longer to complete.
Each flag is hung on decorative cloth backing. Custom orders may be left without cloth backing to be framed by the owner.
This particular flag is dedicated to Ren Kongo. Fierce fighter, protector, and advocate. This particular flags backing/border is accented with the 'many veils' that she was known to have worn. She also has a real gemstone necklace at is adorned with her veve.
These are one of a kind powerful pieces of art that have been stitched with love, honor, and respect to the energies from which come forward from them.
