Catalog: Saluting the Spirits: Vodou Flags of Haiti (1999)

SKU: B0145

This nifty catalog has rare photos of the late voodoo flag master Antoine Oleyant and women sewing flags in his studio at the hotel Oloffson in Port-au-Prince. Pictured in color are flags "Damballah/St. Patrick" by Monique Colin, "Erzulie Freda" by Clotaire Bazile and "Erzulie Danthor" by Yves Telemarc or Telemaque among others. A long informative essay by Salvatore Scalora covering flags in terms of techniqe, artists and symbolism helps to make this catalog a wise addition to your library.
